Three Magi

From the archives. Three Magi. Apple boxes. Found the apple packing and storing company listing.

Was reading about the dismantling of the Christmas stuff at my son’s in Ohio and knew it was Twelfth Night and the end of Christmas. This photo came to mind. The three kings, Epiphany. Bearing gifts. Traveling so far.

These are the big wooden boxes used when the apples are picked in the orchard. You can see them stacked up in tall piles as you drive around this part of the country. You get a new appreciation for the effort it takes to grow fruit. These three apple boxes were just placed like this along the path where we’d walk the dogs.

  2. Three responses felt right – I almost didn’t want to be the 4th but realize there will be many after mine. Love the image and the thought process it has started.

  3. Fantastic! This is wonderful!

    And I’m so glad that you commented on my epiphany post because I’ve been trying to figure out how to get my RSS feeds and just did over the holidays and so I’m so glad that now I can read yours more easily! 🙂
