dinner party or potluck

November 21, 2016

a letter I wrote awhile back

to a group leader

now comes back

in a larger way to me

a dinner party is an event

hosted by some

maybe a few

there are place cards sometimes

that tell people where to sit

and there is the agenda

usually a preplanned menu

the potluck

is an open invitation

maybe sparked by one or a few

there are no place cards

and people are invited

to bring what they can and will

to the table

there is discussion about how

it may happen and unfold

there is inclusion

sometimes it can be random

there is less power and control

in the potluck

I have experienced both

and both have their qualities

I like the potluck better


in the larger picture

what do you prefer
