Serendipity Experience 40: Share an Obsession

3:36 PM

I currently have an obsession with pears. I was actually unaware of my obsession until this morning when I looked around my kitchen and realized that I was surrounded by pears in all different shapes,sizes and forms.

I am actually quite perplexed to realise that I have this obsession. Whilst I enjoy eating pears, it is not their flavour, smell or texture that seems to appeal to me, but their actual form. Why? I do not know.

How is it, that I have sat here surrounded by this obsession for so long and yet been totally oblivous to it?

the long road
