Dollhouse.

      “I think that when we look for love courageously, it reveals itself, and we wind up attracting even more love. If one person really wants us, everyone does. But if we’re alone, we become even more alone. Life is strange.”    -Paulo Coelho     I tried choosing what I fell in love with, perhaps that’s…

Four Small Paws

  About 24 hours ago, I lamented about a distinct yellow stain on my otherwise plush, beige carpeting. I put the dog in time-out for the mishap and he hung his head low as I blasted him with, “Little Dude!” or, “Seriously?” or something I regret now, “just wait until you go to your new…

Pollen, not Petal: 2010 Manifesto

What is beautiful? If a single flower was held up in a room to a hundred different scholars, each would arguably state the cases for it’s beauty, or otherwise. They might remark on the slender stem, or the tendrils of leaves. The petals hold the color best- like a smile lighting up a room.  The…
