the above ingredients were on my chopping board – my preparations for lunch. they were so beautiful. the sharp knife raised, i shuttered at the thought of cutting into their “flesh.” i cringe at the thought even now. so first i ran to the computer and researched “plants feel?” both the scientific and general population chimed in with a mix on both sides of the issue. then i drew them to capture their grace and magnificent design. then …. i chopped and ate. boo who!
