  • This one bloom will produce several kilos of bananas. It's so heavy it must be propped by its caretaker, and yet so vulnerable it can be blown away with a fierce wind or cut away with a simple blade.

    Like a human being, a child of the universe, who hangs on despite the storms, this flower will bear fruit, an excellent source of nutrients. I offer this banana flower to all in this community who need it to sustain their spirit. All who offer their support are mirrors, showing you the beauty and humanity in yourself, showing that you will always be taken care of if you seek it.
