Ode to the Avo

Life is cycles, and the quiet one in which I currently find myself, makes words seem superfluous. Yet, here are the Archives awaiting letters on a screen.

So I ponder avocados.

Learn that first evidence of this “alligator pear” was found in a Mexican cave around 10,000 B.C.

Recall that Pearl Jam’s 2006 release was known as “The Avocado Album.”

Discover that Avocado, California is an ‘unincorporated community’ located very near my own hometown.

Give thanks to the tree just down the hill, which provides our family about one fallen avocado a day, as long as we get there before the chickens.



  1. Gotta watch those damn chickens. Here it’s the Starlings, moved in this spring in waves, terrorizing the strawberries and new eggplants in the garden. Gotta compete if you’re going to eat. ooxx
