Jayne suggested I offer an explanation of how my blog became know as "Loose Lemons".
It is a metaphor for many things however, I'll just explain one particular adventure. I find shopping to be highly entertaining on many levels. Jayne and I were having an abbreviated Saturday shopping get together at Steinmart. I selected several things I could not live without, one being a container of beautiful lemons. Jayne was admiring accessories as I walked up, we stood talking for a moment, the next thing you see is lemons rolling EVERYWHERE!!! We were scrambling about picking up lemons and it was quite funny to see lemons amongst all the "high end" accessories. I just looked at Jayne and said something like, "I've lost my lemons". This later became a discussion about how one views life. Do you pick up the loose lemons and keep going with a sense of humor and a smile on your face? Or once you have "dropped your lemons" are you embarassed and worried about what others will think? I choose to laugh at the funny little curve balls and mishaps that come my way. It isn't always so, but each day that I can do something to eradicate pessimism, cynicism and a myriad host of other isms is a good day!
