Strawberry world

Spring has sprung and strawberries are everywhere. Real strawberries are sometimes sweet, but usually mostly sour. It's strange the way the flavor I tend to associate with "strawberries" is more characteristic of confections like candy or ice cream. It's a bit like life and love.

So strawberries don't become "strawberries" except by adding loads of sugar. Many indications these days say that all the added sugar in our diets is unhealtful and killing us. So we make strawberries the perfect creatures of our imagination at our peril. That too is like life and love.
