Since I didn't get the chance previously to show off my piece-de-resistance for this exchange (even though it is now officially finished), I thought I would make one more contribution to give myself some closure on this project.
The subject, created (if that is the right word) by Stephanie, is "Genesis", and although it may hold for her specifically religious meanings, for me it simply means the start or beginning of new life.

Eating my way through this apple I come, eventually, to the seeds which embody the potential of life renewed.
A Golden Delicious indeed!
I wish you all good fortune in your lives and to always find fresh and stimulating renewal.
