My Relationship With Berries Is Getting Weird…

…I spent yesterday morning bent over in the strawberry bushes and this morning on my knees in front of the raspberries.

I did something yesterday that I’ve never been able to do. I took a giant, overflowing handful of fresh raspberries, juicy enough to stain my hands. I shoved the whole thing in my mouth, every last berry. Every taste bud leaped into the fray and with my eyes closed and the sunlight burning the backs of my arms, with the brim of my hat flipping up and down and playing with the breeze, with highway traffic roaring by, with absolutely nowhere that I had to be other than where I was, I was exactly the person that I am meant to be.
