and why, really, why
does it have to be apple in all the films about the garden of eden?
why not persimmon? why not plum? why not… peach, or grape, or pomegranate?
what have the apple-trees done to the artists since ancient times, did they not provide cider and apple-juice, and comfortable shadow, and most elegant lumber for tools?
and the beauty of the apple-blossom in spring?
really, why the apple, and why red?
