The shittiest apples in the world, which are pretty darn great! Those who have apples would know that I have the shittiest apples in the world; but for those who have none, my apples might look pretty good. And since I never had apples before, for I grew up amongst guava, mango and avocado trees, these apples I have now are not bad at all.

This morning around 10, the grass was wet, the leaves were falling, the trees were yellowish, some even red. Between a fine rain and a light mist, bucket in hand, in my mud boots up to the knees, I walked around and under my apple trees.

The leaves were wet and poured on me. And my apples really don’t look that great; these apples might just be the best!

I don’t care that they are bitter, that some even might have no taste. I have picked them. I have washed them, and I keep them for their smell: on my desk, at the office; on my writing table, at home; on the night stand, by my bed; and all over my book, between shelves. My apples, I keep them all over the place.

I know, I have been told: I have the shittiest apples in the world. But, this morning I picked my own apples, and for one who never had any before, my apples are pretty darn great! 11:18 a.m. October 3, 2009 Lebanon, NH
