Life, onions, and soup

"Life is like an onion; you peel it off one layer at a time. Sometimes you weep .... and sometimes you make soup." Carl Sandburg, as modified by Joan Y.

There is a lesson in there.

I've heard this quote before and, I agree, it is very fitting to life in general.

I love the onion. How funny is it that you posted the day after and a day before my eldest (sweet sixteen!). I wonder if there's any meaning there? Keep drawing, you add beauty to our lives. Ciao

Thanks Serena, Tracy, Susan and Gracie! Onions are to soup as lemons are to lemonade. LOL.
