I returned from the gym this morning feeling rather refreshed after a quiet morning of reading the latest Steve Jobs biography and an hour of thinking on the elliptical machine. Marveling at the warm sunny weather we are enjoying today in the middle of winter, I glanced over at the two dwarf fruit trees on our front porch. Both were teeming with beautiful lemons and oranges.
When did they appear? Have I been so absorbed each time I’ve rushed in and out of our home that I simply missed this? Today, I finally stopped, basked in the sun, unwrapped a thinly peel-covered orange, broke off a big wedge, popped it into my mouth…and let the bursts of flavors explode.
