Words from the table say it all…

Since the first Transformation Table dinner in November 2016, I ask each dinner guest, host, and chef of the evening to sign the white cotton tablecloth that I use to set the table at every dinner. Using Sharpies in a rainbow of colors, they share a thought about their experience of the evening.

After a year of dinners, the tablecloth has become a tribute and testimony to vision, progress, and hope. It is a symbol of the open hearts and minds of our global community, and the power of food as a universal “in” to our shared humanity. Up close, one sees individual signatures, but from afar, the colors seem to blend together; the signatures look like a collective – a united group of ‘Progress Warriors’ who said yes to dialogue, conversation, and opportunity for connection.

There’s something symbolic about that, yes?

This gives me hope.
