tomatos, sand & bananas

how about these tomatos:

‎”We should be careful to get out of an
experience only the wisdom that is in it—and stop there; lest we be
like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit
down on a hot stove-lid again, and that is well; but also she will
never sit down on a cold one anymore. “- Mark Twain

how great is that! Succulent like an heirloom tomato ripened on the vine….

there is so much in each moment, each encounter that we have with another being or place or book or bus ride or song – even when we heard it so many times. there is always more to see and feel and notice. Like sand….sand…always more sand in one’s hair than one could ever imagine when one has gone to ocean beach in san francisco…the sand is so fine and gets in every place…i have seen and noticed and felt enough of it now….

somehow the sand and the words of mark twain, who famously and oft repetedly said that the coldest winter he ever spent was a summer in san francisco…(was by far the truth this year!)
