MAYBE YOU REMEMBER the story of the woman running from tigers. At the edge of a cliff she spots some vines, grabs them and climbs down. But looking down she sees that there are tigers down below too. Even worse, she notices that a mouse is gnawing the vine she is grasping.
But she also spots the most beautiful bunch of wild strawberries growing close by. She looks up, she looks down. She glances at the mouse. She then pulls a luscious bright red berry off the bunch, pops it into her mouth, enjoys it like no other.
Tigers above, tigers below, life is what it is. Every precious moment, every strawberry is worth the effort.
