 h1. Dear readers,
 
 This week, Christina Eng writes about her stone-fruit obsession — one that I share. Christina's description of eating a peach made me salivate, and I was so glad to see Columbia Blossom peaches on my next trip to our co-op; they're organic, they're the size of softballs, and they taste like heaven. Here's Christina's description of eating her first-ever perfect peach: 

 "Nice and bright, ripe and golden and slightly sinful, it was gloriously sweet and juicy and syrupy. I was stunned. Bite after bite, its juices dribbled down my chin and across my hand. I found myself licking my fingers, shamelessly, hoping to savor every drop of glorious excess." 

 Have you been there? Excellent food is stunning, whether it's a single item or a chef's artful creation. Perhaps taste is the sense that can bring us closest to a perfect experience.
