“Let us learn to appreciate there will be times when the trees will be bare, and look forward to the time when we may pick the fruit”. –Anton Chekhov
There is nothing more inviting to the eye than a local market. Whether it be a farmer’s market in Guatemala or the splendors of a Moroccan souq, there is always something delightfully intriguing inside. Markets often open a window into a new culture as well shedding light onto people, traditions and culture.
As the days grow shorter, the wind blows stronger and the sun turns colder, I look to the time that the fruit will grow again and brighten my hungry eyes with sunshine.
“Nothing great is created suddenly, any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig. If you tell me that you desire a fig. I answer you that there must be time. Let it first blossom, then bear fruit, then ripen”. – Epictetus
