There is something very beautiful about a persimmon

December 3, 2011

I don’t actually like to eat persimmons.  They just don’t do anything for me and I’d rather have an apple.

But I love images of persimmons.  Especially in Asian art.

Considering how much I like looking at these things, you’d think I’d like eating them more.  Or maybe because I like looking at them, I don’t want to destroy them.

That could be it.

Still, they’re pretty.  Aren’t they?
