Tomato Koan

I close my eyes in ecstasy as I bite into another slice of "cherokee purple heirloom tomato" which they're giving out as samples at the greenmarket stall.

Seeing this, one of the asian guys who runs the stall smiles and says to me, "They're kind of spiritual."

Not knowing exactly what he's getting at, I play it safe and respond, "Well, it all is, isn't it?"

Laughing, he leans in conspiratorially and says, so only I can hear, "It was an exaggeration, wasn't it?"


One year ago today: I Missed It
Two years ago today: Packs Come In All Sizes
