Daily Fruit + Play

Yesterday I ate:

9:00 . . . juice of 10 valencia oranges
12:00 . . bunch of black grapes
3:00 . . . more black grapes
5:00 . . . 6 bananas
7:00 . . . 1 large cantaloupe + several pickling cucumbers

Play: dance and yoga, secret obsession

I found these bananas in a store yesterday. I have mentioned that I am VERY picky about my fruit. It is like falling in love every time. When I saw this particular bunch, they looked just right and beautiful to me, like love at first sight. I knew they were the ones for me. None of the others were so appealing. When I picked them up, this bunch of seven, they felt perfect in my arms, and I carried them proudly through the store, confident of my success, falling more in love by the minute. No guilt or shame about buying THIS food. I hope other people see how happy my bananas and I are together, and they will get the bright idea to buy some bananas for themselves.

Now they are home with me and I get to bond with them, get to know them, as they go through their ripening process. I love to look at them. I wonder about their life, where they were born, what they have been through to get to me. They are so beautiful. Soon they will become a part of me, the ultimate joining together. ♥

And all of this love, all of this happiness, a huge meal of sweetness, for only $1.82.
