Metaphorically Speaking …

thick skin, hard to peel

sweet and juicy underneath

am I an orange?

I’m currently in research mode, so the book on my desk is Raymond Arsenault’s St. Petersburg and the Florida Dream. Following Linda’s  directions, I closed my eyes, flipped it open, and pointed. I landed on the description of a photo from circa 1917: “transporting crates of oranges.” Thus, this deeply probing look at my interior life 😉

Plus consider this, my Wear Orange for Gun Safety contribution.

  1. You are an orange. Nothing rhymes with you. You are an individual. You can be bumpy outside and soft and juicy and fun and surprising inside.
