I don't think it's irresponsible of me to NOT talk about the BP spill. Discussions regarding that topic are all over the internet. Photographs abound of the wild life that is being destroyed because they can't seem to figure out how to PLUG IT UP! So...I'm not going to talk about it. If you want to talk about it, go to another blog.
I will change the topic dramatically by discussing WATERMELON! I once wrote a monologue about watermelon being my favorite food. I think it may very well be the ideal fruit--second only to the banana. I had a huge bowl of watermelon today for breakfast! Wow! Talk about summer in my mouth. It was delish. I have no idea what I'm doing when I pick melons....but leave it to my beloved Trader Joe's to stock fantastic, ripe, red, juicy seedless mini melons. Nectar of the Gods.
If it seems like I'm in denial over the bigger issues and wanting to write about something as mundane as watermelon...you're wrong. First of all, watermelon is NOT mundane; and second, I'm not denying all the pain and suffering that is occurring as I write these words...but frankly, I needed a breather. It's all too much sometimes, don't you think?
I am continually trying to make my life simpler and that includes the constant influx of information that bombards my brain every single second of the day. It's not denial...it's survival. I breathe. I acknowledge. I do what I can. And I move forward.
Talking about fruit makes me feel better. Don't ask me why. Watermelon and bananas. How simple can you get?
