The pineapple is a type of Bromeliad. From Spanish Moss (also known as Pele’s Hair) to the Pineapple, bromeliads come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Pineapples are a symbol of hospitality, often given as gifts to those new to the islands.
Pineapples make for fun paintings — I've done several!
A fan recently mentioned that he’d like to see a painting of a pineapple at the beach and I thought, “What fun!”
So I took a pineapple to the beach to take photos of it up at the waters edge. I didn't know what it would look like there.
Amazingly I captured a few photos of a wave crashing over the pineapple just before the force of the water pushed it over.
That pineapple went on to become a delicious smoothie and then a painting!
When we mix things up, put something different into the stir-fry or wear polka dots with plaids, we take a tiny risk.
We stay alive by nudging ourselves outside our comfort zone, even just a little bit.
I’m sure some people thought I was crazy taking photos of "my pineapple" at the beach. I didn’t care. I honestly didn’t know what it would look like, how much fun it would be, or how much it would make me laugh!
Laughter is Life on a good day!
Reach for those good days, it's within us all to grab that gusto we often hear about. It means reaching outside of ourselves.
