Simple Things


Pineapple in my window.


A simple shot. A simple photo taken, on a day like any other day. An insignificant moment in time. Just a pineapple from an indian garden in the jungle, traded for rice. Something sweet to share with my kids. Nothing special. Or so I thought.

A simple fruit. The, oh-so-sweet, pineapples that can not be compared to any other grown anywhere else. A taste I may never savor again. A pineapple, sun warmed, tasting of liquid gold, needing no other topping to embellish it's natural flavor.

Yes, a simple life. A life where a pineapple in your window makes you happy and content.

That's a strange looking pineapple. Must be a different variety than they sell here. But it tastes good, I'll bet. I like pineapple.

I envy you. Fresh pineapples are a very special treat here (the cost is too much). I hope you had a lovely Mother's Day.

I keep you and yours in my prayers. May G-d Bless you.
