And Moses Saw the Burning Bush...

Here's a Cayenne pepper bush that I planted last spring. It made a good bunch of peppers through the summer and is really loaded with them right now. I have been eating a handful of them three meals a day for the past few days. Contrary to what you might think they are not that hot but then I am not a good person to ask. 

This plant made me go all Old Testament and think about old Moses up on Mt. Horeb seeing a bush that was afire but not consumed. A quick check on wiki tells us that to Christians and Jews use the burning bush as sign of energy, illumination, and the burning heat of clarity, love and purity.  

Wiki also advances the theory that old Mo might have partaken of hallucinogenic plants native to the area. People in search of religious illumination have been known to do that and the facts of afire and not consumed do not quite geehaw with logical thought but is something that requires faith. The wiki source article is quick to point out that this fact cannot be proved or disproved. There are hallucinogenic plants native to this area and unlike Mo and due to a policy in my workplace I can quickly prove that I wrote this blog post and only consumed Cayenne Peppers as my pure hot illumination. 

I do think that all these old stories and blessing of food from the Earth do mean it's good and fun to be a Christian.    Posted by Picasa
