My all-time favorite quote about relish: "RELISH! What a special name for the minced pickle sweetly crushed in its white capped jar. The man who had named it, what a man he must have been. Roaring, stamping around, he must have tromped the joys of the world and jammed them in this jar and writ in a big hand, shouting, RELISH! For its very sound meant rolling in sweet fields with roistering chestnut mares, mouths bearded with grass, plunging your head fathoms deep in trough water so the sea poured cavernously through your head. RELISH!"

-Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine

Also, please note the long essay on love that I posted below.
This post might be better than that one though. Especially the picture of the relish.

I enjoyed both. but i most especially enjoyed the essay on love. I know exactly what you mean in part 2. i do that all the time when i work at the middle school. I see the faces of former class mates in the faces of middle schoolers today.
