Ideas & Apples: George Bernard Shaw

Yesterday to celebrate my brother’s 12 years as a Reference Librarian at the Williamsburg Regional Libraries, we enjoyed a lovely lunch at Food for Thought (what a selection of delightfully delectable vegetarian dishes & plentiful meaty options for the carnivore!)  ‘Twas too appropriate that the restaurant is all about books & authors (the menu even is divided into chapters) while thoughts enlighten diners with quotes emblazoned all over the walls.  (yes, definitely my kind of place!!)

Dwight & i were both Caught by a Thought above our table from the famous playwright, George Bernard Shaw:

“If you have an apple and i have an apple, and we exchange these apples, then you and I will each have one apple.  But if you have an idea and I have an idea, and we exchange these ideas, each of us will have two ideas.”

Artist: DeScott Evans (1847-1898)

So, think about it… & share an idea (or two) … & see what happens…

grace, peace & Ideas

Virginia : )

p.s. sharing our apples … & oranges & grapes & peaches (especially South Carolina peaches!) & Other Goodies (chocolate?? : ) can also be kinda fun, too.  An apple for an orange? Grapes for peaches? …ah, all of it for chocolate??  : )

    That’s pretty clever don’t you think? Will see if I can manage to bring some of those delicious SC peaches this weekend! 🙂
