Wrong Season

Preference for flowers,
fruit, living in a vegetable
world, must procrastinate,
wait, make do with mushy
soup, until time of sweet
and proper ripening.

Elizabeth Crawford  11/1/11

Notes: Really not sure if I’m ready for this. The Mandalas (which will hopefully accompany these pieces) were created from photos I took over the past several months. They were made on Photoshop by a friend who is far less digitally challenged than yours truly.

  1. The above mandala is the most beautiful I have ever seen. Wow! Love the purple! I, too, am having soup and wishing for something I can chew! However, guess we’re lucky to have soup, hey, kiddo?

    Thanks Sherry. The mandala is from a photo I took at the Farmer’s Market. It’s a table filled with tomatoes and eggplant. I love what my friend has been able to do with these pictures. It fascinates me.

    An unusual look at procrastination: I like it – we have all grown too used to having foods out of season, and coming from far away. I will wait patiently for next year’s local strawberries, hold back from buying those tasteless imports.

    A mandala marvel

    Hi Viv, thanks for stopping by. I dared myself to do the challenge, just hope I can. You are an incentive.

    If I understand correctly, I ‘read’ it is the wrong season for fresh fruit We have to wait until next spring/summer when the right time appears again. For everything there is a season, and we have to find the best in whatever season we are in. Even if the results are a bit ‘mushy’ we embrace them.

    You are so right, Mary. Each season holds its own particular treasures, just some I cherish a bit more than others, lol.
