Cherries, Dancers and Two Bad Wabbits
I was wondering about the origin of the "Life is a bowl of cherries" quote. I looked it up, but didn't find any single entry that rang true. But these were delicious. I liked this image though. The background is part of the kitchen painting I'm working on. I decided that life is like a bowl of cherries only when there's actually a bowl of cherries. Anyway, I figure that if one's situation allows for a bowl of cherries, things can't be too awful.
Things are awful for lots of people.
July 4 approaches and I think of what I might do to celebrate with my family. After last week's Senate voting I thought a nice family flag burning might be fun. But really, I don't want to burn a flag. I just want to appreciate the right to do so, should that expression be called for.
I think I'll try to raise some more money for the CBLDF, possibly with my next sale. It's not a lot, but it's what I can do. Lots of us doing a little will add up.
