* Life is Like … an onion


Life is like an onion

There are many layers to it

It stimulates our senses

It can be put to good use

It can make us weep

Some say there’s a right way to cut it

I disagree

Its ours to do with as we choose.

  1. I love onions – I add them to almost everything. I used to eat peanut butter and onion sandwiches even! When I was little I ate onions like apples.

  2. sometimes I do like to chop it up and fry it… the onion and life! 🙂


  3. In the Stillness of Willow Hill

    Truly, the layers of life may be sliced in any direction we please. The Truth of the Onion!


  4. Make mine stir fried! Or perhaps a bit of sweet and sour?


  5. Love that last line!


  6. Great illustration Val. I suppose the secret is the way we negotiate and peel those those layers away and get down to the heart of it. 🙂


  7. And now matter how you cut it, at the centre is a beautiful pearl… just like life.


  8. You know Donkey described Shrek as an onion in the first Shrek movie. I’ve always liked that analogy.


  9. Of yes, the bitter-sweetness of onions. They make us cry but they sure do spice up every meal.


I'd love to hear from you ...
