Bread and Salt

June 22, 2018

When I was a child, I watched my fair share of Arab soap opera, and one phrase they always repeated was "صار بيننا عيش و ملح" which is a very similar saying to, "We've broken bread together".

عيش و ملح ..يونيو ٢٠/٢٠١٨

...........

For the longest time, I thought that food, in my culture, is what creates this connection between people.. a broken bread, a pinch of salt. That bond is extended to treat the guest with hospitality, protect them, and treat them as one of one's family. I can't help but to think that a deeper meaning is held in that phrase.. a shared life experience, a struggle, an adventure, a moment of weakness, a light at the end of the tunnel.

What do you think?
