Don't Go Back to Sleep

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don't go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth

Everyone is looking for the pandemic to end. Yearning for an end to suffering, limitation, and separation with a large list of things we would love to resume. But does resuming your life include a real reset or simply going back to sleep?

There is also the flavor and texture contrast of pecans and dried tart Montmorency cherries, and even a healthy fat option to round out this beautiful indulgence. Then there's a sweet-tart drizzle to send you over the top.

Here's hoping for a hint of spring in your life, and that you too will go crazy for this insanely delicious medley brimming over in your favorite bowl.
