I love this picture for a lot more reasons than that it is a cute little chili. I love it because a family was shopping in Al Ain last week and noticed it, and they thought it was cute, and they took a picture of it and emailed it in to the newsroom under the headline "chili with a little heart".
In these turbulent times, I have been trying to appreciate the small things in life. And the fact that this family who I do not know, but already like very much, took the time to notice this heart-shaped vegetable, photograph it and then email it to a newspaper so other people could enjoy it too - well, it's just really sweet, is all. And we need a little more of that.
