  • Wild Apples

    By Farhan Sahawneh
    This personal account - nearly an ode to wild apples - at first seemed to be a simple indulgent exchange with nature and history's oldest and most recognizable fruit, later unwrapped almost as many hidden meanings as there varieties of apple. A wonderful and warm and times compelling look at how this fruit embodies the symbols and behaviors and characteristics of man. A short, sweet, and relevant read.
