Not just another pretty fruit -- cherries rock!

Love this painting of one of my favourite fruits.  I am very tired
tonight after painting and teaching.  And I just finished a bowl of
cherries.  Delicious.

Sometimes creative people are so caught up in their ideas that they
have trouble sleeping.  I am one of those people, and if you as
fellow creative people do too, I discovered some interesting news.
Pure tart cherry juice (not from concentrate) has great sleep 
inducing properties.  And the delicious type of cherry in the painting
can add to the sleep inducing power of the juice.  I've been eating 
cherries for the past week, and sleeping like a baby.  

I'm on a deadline with my art, and some other projects, so I can
get wired, and restless ridiculously easily. A glass of cherry
juice, and some cherries, and I calm down.  I know you
are going to recommend everything from whiskey, to
the famous weed.  But this works for me.  Wishing
you a creative life, and peaceful sleeps.
