not Edward Weston's cabbage leaf

It's a new semester, a new iteration of my Writing and Photography course, a new onrush of enthusiasm to remember the names of all 40 students by - oh, let's say the end of tomorrow; a new chance to look at some well-loved (and new) images - such as my favorite example of the extremely mundane turned, via photography, into something very beautiful, Edward Weston's cabbage leaf.  But this is another very welcome cabbage leaf - well, steamed collard leaf.  For the Farmers' Market is back on campus, and that means the falafel stall, where the product comes enlivened with a Senegalese peanut sauce, pickled radish, and, indeed, has a beautiful green wrapper.
