Salt

I was looking for a Pablo Neruda poem this morning and came across this.  Read the poem, and activate even greater appreciation of the salt you sprinkle each day.

I am reminded now of a movie I saw years ago:  The Saltmen of Tibet.   Here is a taste, though perhaps not one with a feminist slant.  Only men go to the Salt Lake.   Having trekked near this area, where life is such a challenge, and men and women work equally hard, I suspect it has to do with the value of women as child-bearers, and not anything else.

The Story of the Weeping Camel is one of my favorite movies.  I see now you can watch it online.  What a world, especially when this movie is one where I felt sad that the prize for a heroic child is more communication with the outside world.
