Contrasts…

Here is a close-up of sage leaves in the morning. They’re growing in a sink(why not!) in our yard. To say they least, they are prolific and not subject to too many negative elements.  This same day I took a shot of commercial broccoli fields near Hollister because I was stopped dead in a traffic jam. The vehicle exhausts permeate the air along with pesticides in the air and water pumped from who knows what source. DSC_0762 - CopyWe eat organic broccoli from small farms, but still there can be issue with the water used to grow these crops. I went to a lecture once where the professor lamented that our bodies are adapting to pollution. There’s a lot behind this statement. But for now, in this California drought, we are getting a good lesson on the importance of clean water. I look at the water drips on these sage leaves and sigh.
