One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow
Dear Ann: Thanks very much for having the foresight and the fortitude, back last summer, to deal with all that delicious fruit. Thank you for not saying no on that humid July day, when faced with a knife, a bowl and a flat of strawberries. Thanks for saying yes to all those pounds of black currents and to the big bag of cucumbers. Thanks for seeing the potential in those gnarly beets. You said you would be grateful in the winter and, you sagacious goddess, you were right. It’s an ancient wisdom, but it gets me every time.
