The tables (tableaux?) where our accumulations happen - even before the pre-party clean-up we can notice the clutter of our days - our personal mini-anthropologies, where the things happen that actually comprise our lives. We may not even stop to notice! Then, during the course of our get-together, more build-up occurs, eventually leaving us with a new kind of clutter, another rememberance, of friends, laughter, re-unitings and new acquantances. Let us celebrate these small spaces in our lives!
