Eggplant love

This last eggplant came from a dearly loved one's garden who recently passed into the spiritual realm.  We harvested the last fruits of her labor in her plot at the community garden. 

I cut open the eggplant and found this heart in the middle.  I was deeply moved and felt the connection was something special. 

I made an eggplant parmesan and gave it to her daughter and family to enjoy.  There is such a powerful connection between humans and nature and often do we forget its lasting impact.
