    By shear coincidence I had bought 10 cup cakes yesterday. 4 Red Velvet 6 store plain brand butterfly. Red Velvet almost $1 each, store brand just over 50 cents

    Red Velvet not worth the extra

    Gush over a Flake Bar OK, not so much over Red Velvet cup cake

    Back to coffee

    Ummmmm

    Born in one day! Midwife in me says no

    Die in one day! Again no, a person's length of dieing begins at the cutting of the umbilical cord and ends at brain death

    Change in one day! Perhaps a segment of yourself

    Fall in love in one day! YES

    repeatedly in one day along with on many different days

    Anything can happen in just one day! Ask any of the astronauts who went to the Moon "How long was the journey?"

    If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal- that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself...
    ~ Henry David Thoreau
    ~ Art 'Bluebell Bloom Time' by Elena Guillaumin
