Life as a Peach

Life is as peachy as I make it to be.
Unknown

Yesterday I was treated to a day at Niagara on the Lake and a fantastic trip down the rabbit hole with the Shaw Festival's performance of Alice in Wonderland. The set designs and costumes are magical. The story perplexing. I have been trying to make sense of Alice's experiences, trying to distill meaning from each of the vignettes that replay in my mind. I've come to the conclusion that I need not seek a moral in everything, in the vein of the rather confused Duchess. Some things in life are just meant to be enjoyed -- such as the peaches purchased from the roadside vendor. Nothing says "August" as sweetly as the peach.

Wishing everyone a peachy day!
