“Colo” — from Proto-Indo-European: “to move, to turn (around).” In Latin, the verb evoked meanings that included “cultivate,” “inhabit,” “protect,” “nurture,” and “worship/honor.” *I use “colo” as the name of this series in order to assert the intersubjectivity of all beings. Other life forms (plants, animals, other humans) are not objects for our use; they are organisms with whom we are in relationship. These relationships should be built on reciprocity and respect. The highest manifestation of relationship is love, which advances mutual thriving. If we don’t love (or even know) the beings who feed us, and if we don’t nurture/cultivate/feed them in return, then eating becomes a superficial, sterile, commercial transaction that can’t possibly meet the deepest needs of anyone involved.
