Tree Wreck

Daily Draw: Etruscan Tarot ~ 5 of Coins

Ever had a car wreck? Going along, minding your own business, and blam. Your day and sometimes your life is changed in that instant. The olive trees of southern Italy have a new to Europe blight, carried from tree to tree by spittle bugs. A sudden can't hardly believe it tree wreck.

I'm reminded by this lad, gleaning the olives, many of those trees date back to Roman times, and have produced steadily since then. They will probably all have to be destroyed. One more 5 of Coins calamity in the modern world.

"You gotta have good olive oil. You should have a cooking olive oil and you should have a finishing olive oil, like an extra-virgin olive oil." ~ Emeril Lagasse 1959-
