Fruit and branch

The 'Harrow Beauty' cultivar of peaches (Prunus persica) at Lyman Orchards in Middlefield, Connecticut. Photographer: Sage Ross


The branch might seem like the fruit’s origin: In fact, the branch exists because of the fruit. (Jalal ad-Din Rumi)

Any Google search can unearth buried treasure. This gorgeous image and the quote from Rumi were the unexpected reward for my searching out what must be some of the wisest, loveliest words ever written:

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I will meet you there” (Jalal ad-Din Rumi).
