Trees that produce the durian fruit appear to be capable of living indefinitely, for centuries. If an older tree dies, it is only due to damage, disease or humans, not old age. The fruit quality increases with age…like goodness that grows with maturity and when doled from a pure mature heart is truly a gift. This fruit was also the first ancient plant to depend on others for dispersal of its seeds…so deliver the gift as well. The sheet music of “a Good Ole Summertime” collages in a tongue-in-cheek reminder, while the blossoms of the durian fruit jump off the background, growing in distinctness and color as they approach, as though sharpening in focus as they grow.
