Apples, the Universe and All That

Originally uploaded by rtfax
Yes, there is an airplane in the sky overhead, but wouldn't it be preferable to imagine that I am contemplating the nature of the universe, apple in hand. After all, it's a Gravenstein, the first of its variety for 2007. I'm surrounded by apple trees, with my wife and youngest son and I ponder...

Each year we make at least one trek, sometimes several, to an orchard a few miles south of Cambridge to harvest apples. This year is the earliest we have been to the orchard, picking Gravenstein and Paula Red. In a week or two, we'll be back for the next variety's ready for the pickin'.

They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. I'm counting on it!
