# 14 summer solstice 2014

I remember my father telling me that when my parents lived in Paris in 1951 and they went to the market there was a day when there was palpable  excitement in the air. It was because peas had come to market. He told this story  in the late 1960s when we were eating instant mashed potatoes and frozen peas with our meat for dinner and and the picture of excitement was  as if it was a  foreign field never to be seen again.

"To the attentive eye,
each moment of the year
has its own beauty,
and in the same field,
it beholds,
every hour,
a picture which was never seen before,
and which shall never be seen again."
Ralph Waldon Emerson
