Ignorance is like a delicate exotic fruit; touch it and the bloom is gone.
One of the many joys of living in Tanzania is the amazing fruit you can buy, for next to nothing. Back in Blighty people struggle to eat their “five a day” but here you can get your quota in, just for breakfast. At the moment, my breakfast selection includes papaya, passion fruit, watermelon, pineapple, banana, limes, grapefruit and lemons. I couldn’t resist painting them, as they are such bright and attractive colours.
.And I’m sorry if you clicked on this blog post to find out some fantastic Oscar Wilde reference as there is none. I’m afraid the only reference to Mr Wilde is that his quote is about exotic fruit, I like exotic fruit and I like Oscar Wilde and I thought his quote from ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ was more enticing than something naff I had tried to come up with like “Start your day with five a day.”
