Useful thing









This spur-of-the-moment-piece, unintentionally
inspired by birds which are not allowed to fly,
makes quite a fine place mat.
Life is profane...


"Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow."

(Langston Hughes: Dreams)

Not to mention slipping on the peel.

It has the quality of the famous visual from the Seventh Seal, that banana. Yikes.

I have to admit to not being familiar with the famous Seventh Seal visual (Bergman??), but I took a photo before biting, dismissed it, took a bite, made a new photo - did that make it more or less Seventh Seal, I wonder...??
And you´re very welcome, Elizabeth...

It's death leading people in a dance I was thinking of, over the fields.

My thoughts are less lofty-it make a great nesting place for what looks like a very appealing snack!

Right, lofty thoughts don´t fill one´s stomach - I´d just wish the food could reproduct there (would make more time for lofty thinking...)
