I've been working (slowly) on painting a series of the seven deadly sins, the first being gluttony. It's a pleasure to read your insights.

there is nothing like fasting to reveal to those of us who think that because we are not overweight, or not very, we must not be at the mercy of our appetites -- to reveal the opposite.

Try to find a Bishop Sheen Life is Worth Living episode called "The Psychology of Temptation." Amazing how stuff from the 50's can cut through today's bs like a laser.

Wow... you are a convert?

Please tell us your story sometime.

Don't forget Gluttony also includes Delicacy. "I want what I want, how I want it, now." Recall anyone who threw away their eggs or steak, because it wasn't cooked "just right"?

True, Skygor. That has rarely been my problem, and in fact I have found it hard to fathom when people let it ruin their morning because their bacon was too crisp (grumbling, "They ought to know how I like my bacon, by now...").

I did once send back a steak that the cook had neglected to cook at all on one side. I do like my steak pretty rare, but prefer that it at least *appear* cooked on the outside!
