Magnificent moment … In the city looking for somewhere for lunch and I saw a young lady taking a photo of a banana, on a book, on a bench.
I thought she was an artist setting up an interesting visual pun, possibly with a triple alliteration. I asked her about it and she said, “No, just passing and it looks interesting.”
And so we had that weird little moment fairly common between two creatives of being strangers united in mutual
observation of an interesting detail. Turns out the book was ‘The Alchemist’ by Paulo Coelho. A book I have wanted to read for sometime.
So I shall … and then I will return it to that same bench. With a banana.
