“The Two Are One”

I died for beauty but was scarce
Adjusted in the tomb,
When one who died for truth was lain
In an adjoining room.

He questioned softly why I failed?
‘For beauty,’ I replied.
‘And I for truth, — the two are one;
We brethren are,’ he said.

And so, as kinsmen met a night,
We talked between the rooms,
Until the moss had reached our lips,
And covered up our names…..Emily Dickinson

Much Better Than The East Coast Version!

The difference in how produce tastes between  east and west coasts often can be huge. Satsuma citrus is a good example. Before we left we bought a few at Whole Foods in Boston. They tasted good, much better than I expected. However, today we also bought a few at Whole Foods in Petaluma, California. Oh My God! They were astounding.

Even the peel felt fresher! I was almost tempted to take a taste of that too!!

Heading Home…We’ll Miss This

We’ve been on the west coast for quite a while now and it’s time to go back to Boston. It snowed there yesterday.

No matter. Albert Einstein said, Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”

I believe it.
