Wild Violet Lemonade

Sometimes, we do things just for appearances. It’s a semi-irrational, usually unjustifiable impulse. Why should we care to alter ourselves outwardly in order to appear different/better, at least for other people and not ourselves? When we change, do we change because we want to change what we see in the mirror or what others see?

In this philosophical vein, I offer you wild violet lemonade. The violet taste itself is delicate and almost untraceable: just slightly floral and wild. But the color is completely lovely and worth it to gather those violets covering your backyard in this early Spring season.
