As my honey and I begin to pare down, it got me thinking of p-e-a-r-s. I like their look, smell, touch and flavor. They seem humble to me somehow...not bright like an orange, exotic-furry like a kiwi or loud like a crunchy apple. I offer some examples of the humble pear. Any advice for paring down stuff? We've accumulated many "treasures," and am finding it a little challenging to choose between them. What's your opinion of The Pear?
