The Food of Empathy

At a school training, we watched a short video on the difference between empathy and sympathy by Brené Brown. In my writing course, I was tasked with comparing an image to an abstraction. This was my result. Enjoy!

Empathy is…

warm apple cider
steaming…
on a cold, crisp night.

savory stew
slow-cooking…
at 2 in the morning.

creamy cheesecake
shared…
when a cafe is closing.

…no judgement.
