Strawberry Fields Forever

Photo credit: Hannesine via Ana Sinhana

Been thinking a lot about small town America this week. I think it has to do with the jackhammers pulverizing the sidewalk outside my city window and the strawberries in the supermarket.

Strawberries and peaches should be eaten in the United States and passion fruit and papaya in Brazil, in season and with your hands, juices dripping down your arm and up your sleeve. Or better yet, they should be eaten after you have picked them, straight from red-stained strawberry picking fingers. Feeling the sunburn on your neck and itchy ankles, you rush your exhausted body home and deliver your bounty to the pie crust waiting for its filling.
