This Is A Cake!

It's from Russia. Although I admire the artistry it seems sad to me to spend such time on an object which will, ultimately, be destroyed. I guess to some that would add to it's art, like ice and sand sculptures. Maybe that makes me a barbarian who doesn't understand that all art is ephemeral. Oh well. I don't understand music either, or math, or astronomy, or physics. My old friend from high school just had a book published. I think I am feeling I have never accomplished anything that will stand the test of time (except, of course, my most important production of a wonderful, loving son). Perhaps that will be enough. At my age one begins to wonder what I can leave behind as a legacy.
