A Matter of Perspective

I’m beginning to understand why they call them “love apples,” but I’ll stick with tomato for now. This year the garden has produced some interesting ones. For example, there’s this magical specimen. The way I see it, there’s a lesson to be learned here. I’m not sure what exactly it is–perhaps something to do with first impressions. Or maybe it’s a matter of perspective…or maybe, it’s both. Anyway…

A good-hearted tomato.

Many folks will immediately see a a big heart. That’s what my wife saw. Made me think of something romantic, like a good-hearted woman, so I decided I’d take a photo of it. But as I focused my camera on it, I began to see it differently…the warped male side of me was emerging. Sure enough, it was much more than a heart.


It shapeshifted on me. Like one of those Native American spirit animals…or in this case, vegetables, it had become something more. Not only did she have a good heart, but she had a pretty butt, too. Don’t you just love the way mother nature expressess herself? ….Or maybe it’s just the hormonely intoxicated work of the male mind. 

Another Perspective.

  1. Rick I am so happy to have found you. This feat was entirely by accident. After purchasing an Amazon Fire tablet in order to read books, your book Ghost came up first. I have been barely able to put it down!
    A good author, a good book, and now I found you are a neighbor. I live in the suburbs of Star, MS.
    Keep it up. I look forward to all of your books.
    God bless you and thank you for your service to our country.

  2. Hello and Welcome, End. I will be doing about one blog post a month beginning in November. Suburban sprawl has overcome us up here in DeSoto County. We no longer live out in the country, as Cedar View has now been enveloped by the booming metropolis of Olive Branch. I hope you enjoy reading my books.
