Layers – Friday Fictioneers

Take 2.  I dunno what happened.  I’d like to blame the WordPress Gremlins for taking my post (which I kinda really liked) and tossing it in the dumpster.  Actually, I will totally blame them.  My post disappeared and  I have attempted to rewrite it.  It is amazing how once you have written it once, you cannot rewrite it exactly the same.  No. I do not write on another forum and copy and paste it here.  I’m a do it once in the right place kinda girl.  So… for those of you who read the first one, I apologise for not responding to your comments.  I was going to do that when I got home and found out my post no longer existed!  I do thank any of you who take the time to reread and re-comment!

Thank you to Rochelle for hosting this party weekly and thank you this week to Sandra Crook for allowing us to use this wonderful image!

Layers.  I can’t help but think of Shrek trying to explain to Donkey that ogres have layers just as onions do.  Donkey tried to convince Shrek to use cake instead, but onions are way more complex. They may look drab and ordinary on the outside but cut them to see what they are made of and they cry.  Their tears burn your eyes, Their flesh bites your tongue.  However, if you cook them gently, adding just a bit of salt and oil, they transform into something tender and sweet.

Time, patience, a little care and love is all it takes.
