A Second Banana
On The First. . .
Recently, Nina Hollander, Broker included a quote from Banana Yoshimoto in a post. Although it is her pen name, Mahoka Yoshimoto is the second Banana that I have "come across" with the exception of some late-night sidekicks over the years. But, I digress. . .
ActiveRainLand’s own Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, CRB, Phoenix Broker, immediately comes to mind for me as well as many other members on this platform. But am I being too narrow by not being open to other possibilities? Banana-wise, I mean. Could I make a split from Ms Banana for something and someone previously unknown-to-me?
As we see on an everyday basis, brighter and potentially shinier objects are constantly thrown our way. They tempt but can they win in their appeal(or is that a peel?)??
When I went for a search of additional banana bonanzas, I found banana puns. There was a list but it turned out to be quite limited. I quickly realized I need look no further. While I now know a second banana can be found, I think I am gonna stay happily a part of that original bunch.
In the meantime, here is a quote from Ms Yoshimoto. It's thoughtful and insightful. If Ms Kruchten cares to add any words of wisdom of her own, those are gladly accepted and appreciated as well. You, too Gary AKA Gary 'Banana' Houghtaling. Let's see who can produce first?
Truly happy memories always live on, shining.
Over time, one by one, they come back to life.
Happy July 1.
