Friends and Loveliness of Life

Friends holding the banner, the banner holding us. On the back porch of our West Brunswick home. La Professoressa behind the camera.

I hold in my hand the perfection of a lavender eggplant new to the world, my fingers huge against its flower-fruit perfection.

A second growth of purple heavy hanging eggplants, just appearing as Fall sets in, relying on stored heat to gain in strength, as we rely on our better selves to find another way in this world of invasions and occupations.

Again, my hand a resting place for the vividness of new life, my 73 year old hand.
