just spit out the seeds...




this is a lovely tropical fruit called "atis" here in the Philippines.

i don't know what it is in English.

when you open it, delicious soft white grainy flesh surrounds big black seeds. you have to be careful when eating it that the seeds don't slip down your throat.

but...it's delicious.

you just have to spit out the seeds.

sometimes life is like that.

beautiful and nutritious, but with tricky bits.

i actually took this photo, believe it or not.

it reminds me to chew life slowly and carefully, savor the sweetness of its fruit, and spit the seeds out.
