Sad, but sheppard's know that the family must eat... It is not out of meanness, but necessity. It does not make it less sad... but more real... Lovely write. Ann

I truly never want to eat a lamb chop. This is a reminder.

You have nailed it, the essence of it, Jenish… After the flood during Noah's time, meat IS permitted us, for the reason you gave. Thank you for the insightful comment. Happiness and Joy, Gershon
