These little fluffy chicks were definitely very new to the world, still wobbly on their legs when I saw them by the roadside. Mother hen was doing her job well keeping a watchful eye over them. I enjoyed watching them instinctively scratch the earth looking for something to eat.

As mangoes start getting scarce and price goes up, the fruit lovers all have a tough time deciding how many to buy and how much to pay! There is also the fact staring right at you that these may be the last of the mangoes until next season and no one wants to say good bye to those fruits yet! This is where there is huge argument about need and want :)
Speaking of food and art, I am excited that next month while visiting Chicago, I will be able to see Chicago Art Institute exhibit "Art and Appetite: American Painting, Culture, and Cuisine" You can check here for the link from the Art Institute and here from the Chicage Sun Times for a preview. When food is such a big part of our lives, it is no surprise that it is a favorite subject for artists, writers and all others as well!
