What a Delicious Strawberry
“… and the man desperately hanging from a branch on the side of a mountain knowing that he could not climb up the sheer cliff or let go of the branch because he would drop to his death knowing that this was the end. He looks over his shoulder and saw a strawberry plant growing out of the side of the mountain with a beautiful luscious red strawberry on it. He reached out and picked the strawberry bit into it and said what a delicious strawberry.”
What this Chinese parable reminds me of is “all we have is today, today is all we ever had, and today is all we will ever get” so savor the moment here now!
“It’s a Good Day to Die”
