Life is like a bunch of cherries

sweet black cherries from the turkish corner storeThe tv is on, but the sound is off, because there are commercials on. I am eating some delicious black cherries that I bought from our neighbourhood Turkish store. They are juicy and sweet and they taste as good as cherries do in your dreams.

I love our Turkish corner store. It is one of the best things about our neighbourhood in West. His fruit and veg are fresh and cheaper than at the supermarket.

Through the open window Spanish guitar music softly drifts up to our apartment on the fourth floor. It's a mystery to me where it might possibly come from. It's beautiful. As I pop another cherry in my mouth life suddenly feels very good.

  1. that sounds heavenly. my husband and I are beginning to work towards moving to Amsterdam and you are furthering my serious case of impatient wanderlust. ;)

  2. Last night was lovely, wasn’t it? My little family and I were walking around the canals and enjoying la vie d’Amsterdam too! And check out today!! It’s a warm reminder of why we live here.

    The cherries from the market are also good – always better than the regular supermarkets.

  3. Sounds nice and relaxing
