– Take a seasonal fruit that you like.
– Place the fruit on a cutting board.
– Close your fingers so that the fingertips grip the fruit firmly.
– Press the knife slowly into the fruit.
– Push with gentle, firm pressure, cutting the fruit lengthwise.
– Divide the fruit into two parts.
– Place one of the parts on the other, looking for a precarious, but barely stable balance.
– Breathe with joy until the balance is broken.
