I go to the grocery store, and buy fruit. There is fruit I recognize, like apples and bananas. Other kinds of fruit are completely new to me like the broad leaf bramble or the Florida strangler fig. These are real fruits, I realize, and not random words the grocer made up. I wonder, should I buy something exotic, do I feel adventurous? I imagine that an entrepreneur would say: “I’ll just put these grumichamas through the juicer and whip up a healthy soda”. Instead I buy apples, the kind my grandmother would cut into eight parts, and afterwards cut the peel off of. I go home and perform the same actions, savouring the taste of each individual part of a nice fresh apple. Outside in my garden, flowers that I can’t tell apart grow tall in the bright spring sun. My grandmother would’ve been able to distinguish between the flowers. I was, and still am, more interested in digging holes in the backyard than planting things. I could tell you all about the right approach to digging big holes. My grandmother would probably have thought they all looked very much alike.
