Today's bounty experienced through the stained hands of yesterday

Who would think that a 66-year-old man would take a picture of his hand when it’s stained purple from eating mulberries.

For me, it wakes up the little boy within who used to run to the neighbors during mulberry season for a tasty treat. The picture of the purple hands is a reminder of those days when I ran through mulberries bare-footed and frustrated my mother with purple feet, purple hands and mulberry stains on my clothes!
