Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Japanese Persimmons known to the ancient Greeks as "the fruit of the gods".

Japanese Kakis (Persimmons) known to the ancient Greeks as "the fruit of the gods". They are very high in nutrients, especially glucose, proteins, vitamin C and calcium. They have a sweet, tangy flavor, and can be eaten fresh, cooked, or dried. They are great for baking into desserts such as cookies, cakes and bread puddings, cobblers and crisps. Fresh fruit juice blends along with fresh Persimmons is a wonderfully delicate drink, as well as homemade sorbets. Persimmons are in fact, actually "true berries". The Japanese Kakis shown here are the most widely cultivated in North America. One of the purest of art forms, a precious life giving berry thrust into it's fading beauty, as it withers away on the vine. Finding and cultivating an awareness of the finer things found in sometimes the most mundane. Many would just walk by that withering tree and see no beauty in it's decaying fruit, but not I~
