Today I spied organic alphabet soup in the grocery store.  There is some humor to be found in the idea that someone invested in eating organically would also want a food so tortured & processed that it can spell out words.  And, I don’t believe anyone is REALLY teaching their children to read with soup.  So do we really need to communicate with food, literally, or am I just a huge hypocrite for constantly preach about the transformative & communicative power of food?  Okay, I’m a hypocrite, ha.  But, this next Call speaks to the power of text; however, I suspect they are not searching for alphabet pasta mosaics.  Check out this fantastic venue…
