Life is like . . .



It’s how the saying goes, isn’t it? I took these this week. I couldn’t resist—cherries were on sale.

I like what Mark Bittman has to say about cherries in How to Cook Everything: “There’s an occasional one or two in the batch that makes us pause and think, ‘Oh. Now I remember why I love these.’ But these days the fact is that a bowl of cherries is a lot like life—fairly mundane, with some high spots” (630).
