As Smart As A Banyan Tree

Both Of Us Chaps Have Maui In Our Roots

… if you will pardon the pun.

Banyan Tree – Lahaina. Maui – Planted in 1873 – to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the arrival of the first American Protestant mission … it is now the largest Banyan tree in America.

So we were delighted to learn that the tree of knowledge is not an Apple or an Oak but a Banyan.

All well and good, but can you pack the fruit in your lunchbox?

.. or indeed challenge your mates to a game of banyan?

Wait — did I really just hear “…the tree of knowledge is not an Apple”? Color me shocked…

Actually no … you didn’t … at least not here … you read it … our podcast is still in planning stages.

Sigh… Metaphor, it’s a metaphor… As in —

A man’s reach should exceed his grasp, Or what’s a metaphor?
