My thoughts today with regards to Produce

So these are some beautiful flowers that I got for $10 at the Dallas Farmer's Market. They were a beautiful addition to the kitchen table, but they made me homesick for the Fayetteville FM. It was definitely more small town than here. I can't complain though. Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries, and Brussel sprouts were my other purchases. :) I'll be going back open daily 8-6!
So I love Wal Mart don't get me wrong. I don't think anyone who has lived in NWA can have a beef with them. However, today I go to the store to buy bananas to make homemade banana pudding for a friend and all they have are unripe bananas. Green! and this is a selling point for them. The sign said not ripe for your convenience... and if you want them ripe sooner put them in a bag with an apple and they will be ripe tomorrow... first of all what about all the people that get a hankerin for a banana and go to walmart... they are shit out of luck. apparently. As someone who doesn't really like bananas I don't really care except in instances like tonight where Walmart screws with me!!

Since Dec.

So this actually hasn't been since Dec but I love this pic and wanted to see if I could download picts onto my blog... 

I have been really struck lately by how other people's pain affects me. I become like a sponge and soak it up. Maybe in a attempt to empathize, take some of theirs away... seem more appropriate in my love or gesturing towards them. . . or maybe because its this weird sadistic thing about me.
