I didn't continue posting during the Holy Week, thinking wrongly that nobody would be reading. As it turns out, I got the most number of hits on Black Saturday, of all days.
Anyway, I hope everybody had a meaningful week, whether spent in introspection, family reunion or otherwise, and whether the Catholic/Christian religious tradition was observed or not.
Let me just share the following message I received for Easter, which I found to be true in how I look at life in general.
"Let the...season remind us all that life is just lent to us. We are all just passing by. We are not immigrants here. We are all pilgrims on the road. We bring nothing when we die. But we can leave behind the love we have shared, the hope we have given and the goodness we have done..."
And may the beauty and freshness of these yellow flowers inspire you for Easter.
And may I venture to ask, can anybody guess what they are? They were brought in a tight bundle to the kitchen table very early in the day by the tenant of a farm owned by my in-laws, and I spent a good part of the morning trying to remember what they are. Silly me, I have been eating them since childhood (yes they're edible, in keeping with this blog's theme), but I couldn't place them, because it was the first time I saw them this vibrant and gloriously fresh. They're usually sold in the market all closed back, wilted.
So let us see if anybody can arrive at the name faster than me.
