Famine (Part 1)

fam·ine :  [fam-in]  –noun
1. extreme and general scarcity of food, as in a country or a large geographical area.
2. any extreme and general scarcity.
3. extreme hunger; starvation.

When I think of the word “famine”, I think of pain. I think of phantom limbs — an ache for what no longer, or never has existed. My mind makes a connection with the agony of desiring more than what is placed before us. The word “famine” becomes a synonymous with “discontent” and “empty”.

Whether you make a connection with my thoughts or not, you can be sure of one thing: we are all famished. When we stand alone with the world before us, we are all lacking the ability to be whole. Undeniably, we are solely incomplete.
