In the ways that repetition is a form of translation, repetition is also to enact something for the very first time, every time–to look again, and to do, again. And in that doing again, over & over again, it is never the exact same doing. In the ways that repetition is a form of mistranslation, repetition is also to enact or embody something in the way we understand that something, in the ways we observe and touch, and observe and touch, again. In the ways that the recipe is alchemy for the body, it is a repetition of that alchemy that creates body memory. In the ways that we feed ourselves and others, over & over again, it is a translation of loving, and loving in communion. Together, we call forth, we call the body, we call the blood, we call back.
