I was hoping to come up with some grand motive for beginning our blog with a lemon. The truth is, the blog decor made me think....lemon! And there you have it. Perhaps subconsciously I thought we could all use a little citrus sunshine to get us through the winter. In any case, I was looking through a poetry book the other night and I came across a Pablo Neruda poem called A Lemon. The very last line of the poem reads "the diminutive fire of a planet." I just had lemon curd tonight and I think he may be right.
