Intelligence within a Shell

To my Eyes: The Walnut is the “Brain” of Nature Itself!

When still a Baby nurturing its Body from Mother Earth on its Tree, its colour is Vibrant electric green with yellow little “Stars” decorating its hard Texture. By gazing at it, its shape is Oval just like our Galaxy, its size fits perfectly in the Palm of my Hand and its Aroma has a Refreshing Lemony Pungency that Electrifies the Cells in my Brain! As if I was suddenly Inhaling a Scent of “Youth” Revitalizing & Rejuvenating a Forgotten Innocence! But that is the Beauty when being a Child… All Fragrances are Unique and the Curiosity to understand the most Intense Ones, Stigmatizes a part of our Memory we thought to have Lost. The Specific Perfume of this little Green Universe, took me back to the Age of 5 years old when I used to live in Africa and played with whatever Nature provided me with at that moment in company of my Friends! Creativity was our Playground & its Wisdom our Oxygen.

Now… Breaking its Skin when it is still so Young and Immature, is not an easy task! One has to Crush it with a Stone to Crack its Playful Stubbornness but once it Surrenders, it Reveals the most Perfect & Superb Meandering Labyrinth… Again travelling me Back in Time to Ghana, when each new Experience close to Mother Earth Infused in my Veins & Structured me with Vigour. The First Lesson I learned: ” The Art of being Genuine”… Because Nature only Teaches us to be in Touch with our Inner Self & Respect our very Own Integrity above Anything Else.

Nevertheless, at this Stage, its Taste is bitter, acidic and stringent. It still has a Journey to Grow Into & Acquire its Perfect Savouriness. But that is…The Elegance of Time… if you allow it to Seduce you with Patience & Love…
