Downside Up

The first time I saw bananas growing on a tree I said, "What the....?" Threw me quite a curve. Maybe it was because of years seeing them so carefully lined up and curled down in the grocery stores. Never got used to it. Still tickles me to look at them. In India we used to use the leaves as dinner plates. A great tree and very popular on the earth. And a fruit with a sense of humor.

Interesting neith. I still think it comes back to personal gain though. Some people are more dependent on others for needs, it seems. Maybe then dependency is actually a good thing and fosters cooperative behavior.

Astrid! What a lovely hand you have!
