A big glass bowl is set down on a placemat in front of me. I look down and delight in green hues of arugula, spinach, kale and romaine lettuce. Tossed into this freshness are chunks of wet, juicy tomato. Hidden between lettuce leaves are tasty cubes of feta. Happily, I devour this bowl of goodness. I chew and enjoy the sweet taste of tomato juice mixed with the brine of feta and the zing of a chopped onion.
Sometimes I feel as if I’m in a glass bowl looking out at the summer. I have decided to enjoy what is placed in front of me, because that’s what I am offered. Now!
