A Case of the Human Condition: In Your Face Orchids



There’s nothing I can say about these orchids.

Except that they were growing in Thailand, on a farm, where there were so many feats of blossoming splendor that by tour’s end Jon, Christina and I were wailing, “No! Please! Not another stupendously beautiful orchid! Get me out of here! Take me to the snake ranch!”

Where, of course, the snakes were beautiful too.
