Cakes have gotten a bad rap. People equate virtue with turning down dessert. There is always one person at the table who holds up her hand when I serve the cake. No, really, I couldn’t she says, and then gives her flat stomach a conspiratorial little pat. Everyone who is pressing a fork into that first tender layer looks at the person who declined the plate, and they all think, That person is better than I am. That person has discipline. But that isn’t a person with discipline; that is a person who has completely lost touch with joy. A slice of cake never made anybody fat. You don’t eat the whole cake. You don’t eat a cake every day of your life. You take the cake when it is offered because the cake is delicious. You have a slice of cake and what it reminds you of is someplace that’s safe, uncomplicated, without stress. A cake is a party, a birthday, a wedding. A cake is what’s served on the happiest days of your life. This is a story of how my life was saved by cake, so, of course, if sides are to be taken, I will always take the side of cake. —

This is exactly my take on nutrition.
I love this quote so much I want to frame it to hang in my kitchen.
I’m pretty sure this is my new life philosophy.
No, of course I didn’t just literally tear up over a quote about cake.

Do not reach for the stars. They are giant balls of fiery gas. Waste of time.

This quilt of two neurons is about 12X16 inches and was inspired by Greg A Dunn. I had been wanting to make a neuron quilt for a few months before I found his paintings. The red part is fabric cut on the bias and appliqued on with fusible web and I stitched over with a silver metallic thread.
