Summer is going to end too soon, so we suggest you take up a salt shaker, go into your vegetable patch and pick a tomato — one of those ripe red tomatoes that have soaked up the sun and internalized its heat and color. The garden is looking bedraggled by now, because you’ve stopped pulling weeds and the tomato plants themselves are sprawling over each other. The air is sultry with the tangy odor captured under the tomato leaves. Now bite into the tomato and, while you’re enjoying its warmth and juiciness, sprinkle a tiny bit of salt where you took that bite and take another bite. You can finish the tomato that way — just the very slightest amount of salt for each bite. You’ll be a mess, of course, your hands and chin soaked and dripping with tomato juice, but you’ll have eaten a real tomato such as no one who lives in a fancy apartment in the city will ever know. Let them eat their hearts out! You know how to live.
