Self Portrait in Egg Plant

Farmer’s Market, Emporia, Kansas

It isn’t a good likeness. I’m not purple, and my body type is at least a little better than an eggplant. Nevertheless, the dark blob reflected in the vegetable fruit on the right is me – in case you’re wondering what I look like. But giving credit where it’s due, this vendor did a beautiful job of presenting his produce for sale.

    Don't want to give you a big head, but you really are cuter than eggplant.

    I was touched by the care this vendor put into displaying the produce. It adds such a feeling of depth to the activity, because one can easily imagine that equal care and devotion when into the entire process of planting, growing, and harvesting the food.

    Thanks Anita, I'm cuter than an egg plant and twice as fruity.
