Georgia. . .
On My Mind
It wasn’t Ray Charles or even peaches in honor of the Empire State of the South but thoughts of a different Georgia that came to mind the other day. Actually it was Georgia O’Keeffe who visited. Well, at least in my thoughts.
Sit back for a second and what comes to your mind when I mention her name. I understand some may draw a blank. For others it may be simply one word: Art. Maybe oversized flowers. Or New Mexico and its landscape. But for me, those things are a part of what comes to mind but so is a starker image of urban life
and skyscrapers which I saw last year on a trip to Santa Fe and the museum named for her.
Where I was born
and where and how I have lived is unimportant,
it is what I have done
with where I have been
that should be of interest.
I was reading some essays by author Joan Didion and the above quote was shared. Ms. Didion had her insights. To me, it was about a life journey. Not only one part, they take on multiple meanings. Individually as well as collectively.
Now, I have a craving for peach pie which coincidentally seems to be a bit of a theme since earlier in the day I read an article about restaurateur David Chang whose culinary empire includes Momofuku restaurant group which he has said means giant peach in Korean.
Yes, ah the possibilities of peach. Simple and uncomplicated. Think of the possibilities.
