red tomatoes and pink martini's

So, there are lots of red tomatoes coming in from the garden.



The first stop is in my kitchen sink. They look pretty and carefree floating about in the water.

I wash them and place them on the counter for quartering and a trip to the Squeezo.




As I begin to process the tomatoes, my mind wanders...and I begin to mentally process something that happened a few weeks ago... to two very good friends of mine.



Something unexpected. Something changed. It left me sad and blue...and seeing a little red...it is a "change that is hard and not so nice".



So, I'm singing the pink martini song while I stir the tomatoes. and hanging on. just like the little tomatoes.



It makes for good music to stir by, and reminds me that sunny somedays are still ahead....




The sun has left and forgotten me
It's dark, I cannot see
Why does this rain pour down
I'm gonna drown
In a sea
Of deep confusion

Somebody told me, I don't know who
Whenever you are sad and blue
And you're feelin' all alone and left behind
Just take a look inside and you will find

You gotta hold on, hold on through the night
Hang on, things will be all right
Even when it's dark
And not a bit of sparkling
Sing-song sunshine from above
Spreading rays of sunny love

Just hang on, hang on to the vine
Stay on, soon you'll be divine
If you start to cry, look up to the sky
Something's coming up ahead
To turn your tears to dew instead

And so I hold on to his advice
When change is hard and not so nice
You listen to your heart the whole night through
Your sunny someday will come one day soon to you
