“I asked the Zebra,
are you black with white stripes?
Or white with black stripes?
And the zebra asked me,
Are you good with bad habits?
Or are you bad with good habits?
Are you noisy with quiet times?
Or are you quiet with noisy times?
Are you happy with some sad days?
Or are you sad with some happy days?
Are you neat with some sloppy ways?
Or are you sloppy with some neat ways?
And on and on and on and on and on and on he went.
I’ll never ask a zebra about stripes…again.”

~Shel Silverstein


It has been said that a tiger cannot change his stripes-but, why would he ever want to do such a thing?  Stripes are everywhere and add a little pizzaz to leaves, lobsters, clothing and the great Chuhaly glass art.
