∙ò∙ life is not just a bowl of cherries ∙ó∙

∙ó∙

∙ó∙

∙ó∙

life’s too mysterious

   to waste it on wondering why…

just try

∙ó∙

but don’t limit yourself

to one bowl

  of  red cherries…

try some yellow,

pink or purple

or…

have a banana

∙ó∙

take a chance

   you may like it…

so what if  you don’t?

who cares?

∙ó∙

life should be more

than just a bowl of  cherries

  5. hmmm…love me a bowl of red cherries..but heck yes..i’ll take bananas or oranges as well… think it’s one of those mysteries to be happy if you’re able to cherish whatever life serves you…good thoughts in this dani

  6. hedgewitch

    Yes, it should, it should be cherry pie with ice cream! ;_) Loved this dani, and the music was a blast from my infancy past.

  7. if you love cherries more than anything else, and it’s cherry season, then it’s best to limit yourself to eating only cherries YUMMMMMM

  8. life is the other name for diversity.. nice concept..!!
