What Others Notice

A couple from Ireland stopped in front of where I was seated on a bench, having lunch in the shade at the Public Gardens.

“That looks absolutely amazing…,” they said to me of my meal.

I looked up at them.

“Honestly, it is…Every single thing about it is divine. The juice, the colour, the taste, the texture, the context…(I laughed) I am so enjoying the pleasure of my lunch…”

“It’s why we felt like we could stop,” said the wife.


“You looked like you were so happy, simply eating a beautiful plum.”
