– Reading The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, which really is quite enjoyable (because God knows I don’t get enough reading in lately), and found the following passage curiously resonant: “It was time to take the pumpkin out of the pot and eat it. In the final analysis, that was what solved these big problems of life. You could think and think and get nowhere, but you still had to eat your pumpkin. That brought you down to earth. That gave you a reason for going on. Pumpkin.”
