who are you?
strange suite of thoughts for the day. i looked at this and first thought it looked like a pine cone. then i thought it looked like the pineapple plants we used to see in polynesia. then (i can’t tell you why it just occurred to me now) i remembered that when we are in france, they call pine cones “pommes de pin” or “pine apples.” and so i have to believe that pineapples in english get their name by way of french, based on their resemblance to pine cones. i’m just giddy enough with this chain of thought that i don’t want to look up the actual derivations, because i’m afraid they will be much more boring. by the way, i still don’t know what this pine-apple-cone plant is. any help accepted gladly.
