Today I’d like to share a little background about the name of my blog, Around the Mulberry Bush. First, as you might have guessed, I LOVE mulberries!
And, it just seems like they keep reappearing in my life and conjure, for me, pleasant memories and warm feelings. My dad grew a tiny mulberry tree down a path through the woods in my yard as kid. There were a few near my house in Jacksonville, FL, where I played with the neighborhood kids and showed them the yumminess that was growing in their backyard.
I’ve spent lazy afternoons climbing the trees, munching the fruit and pondering life. And I’ve made all kinds of tasty creations with them:
I’d like for the spirit of fun and sweetness I get when I think of mulberries to infuse my work here, and for the blog to be a source of rejuvenation whenever I come here to write.
“I went into the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover I that I had not lived.” – Thoreau
