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.
