So true! It is pleasure also to aaptrke in the bounty rewarded to the patient and reverent hunter. He, too, experiences that intimate connection with his food, as does the family he provides for. I learned this as a child helping to process the game. It was an honor to grow up this way. It taught me everything I know, love, and respect about nature.

well its not that weird because the friend died at a younger age and the other guy died at an older age. the dead don't grow older as they die because time is erelevent so to us he's been eating peaches this whole time but because time is erelevant the friend has no idea how long he has been dead
