There has always been this obsession with the others we share this planet with.
We communicate with them on certain basic levels and yet they inhabit a plane so different from ours: savage, instinctive, a life of sheer survival. At the same time they can do things beyond human abilities: fly through the skies, swim the oceans, apply t

For Ben Pruitt
Sleepy actions can be just as open and truthful as those of a drunken man.
Much more healthy for the body, for sure.
Last night ~ priceless.
He asked me what I thought of his sweet nothings - worried I was bothered by his giant romantic streak - NEVER!
Muttering, half asleep, that I of course adored his words sweeter than honey; I asked for more, something I never asked for when awake.
I asked for his love for me.
I can only imagine what he felt at my curled up figure saying that cuddled against his warm body.
As we began. Tangled the next morning he brought up the whispers in the night.
Both terrified of rejection, our youth, and the devotion required for those words...
My SmileFor Ben PruittMy Smile9 months ago in Personal More Like This

I had tuck it in a corner
Like a note to inspire myself later during my dark days
Or money left in a coat pocket four years later.
Do you know where I found my smile, reader?
With a friend, someone I had entrusted with my vulnerability.
That's what my smile is, you know? Vulnerable, unprotected, and un-phased by the scars on my heart.
I unknowingly gave it to him because like a Wolf who protects its cubs,
He protected my smile even in the darkest of times.
He was always opinionated but never judging.
Thank you for keeping my smile safe.
Now that I have it back,
May offer to protect yours?

So impersonal until I knew the author.
His words struck me like a cord of music.
Do I believe him now? Yes.
To believe these that are inside me.
To not hold back the hopeless romantic that I am due to fear of getting hurt again.
To open my vulnerability to my best friend who has only just discovered my existence.
For him, I will try.
Is to be there for him because I know he needs it just as much as me.
Is not letting him take the brunt of the abuse, even if he thinks it will help.
Is tenderly kissing him no matter how my friends feel.
Is the goal both of us are striving for.
He is finally mine, and I am not letting that go.
Seeds of HopeGoodbye baggage. I don't need you.Seeds of Hope7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Be smushed and crushed and demolished in some other place.
My heart is not for you. My soul is not for you.
I don't need your clutter anymore.
You do not deserve my tears. My emotions shall not be focused on you anymore.
I will grow from this. For every destruction allows for new life to grow.
The seeds of hope have been planted. Soon they will sprout with new thoughts.
New words. Softer thoughts. Kindness towards myself and other.
Peace will ingrain itself into my psyche that I will have no choice but to be calm.
Emotions will be pure. Happiness will flow without being forced.
If I want to smile, I will. If I don't, I won't. These are my life rules now.
Goodbye baggage. I wish you the best of your destructive life.

EDIT: If you don't like the statements made below about Disney's film, you don't need to tell me. this journal's purpose is BEYOND the scope of just one animated movie. so please try to understand the general image instead of nitpicking over small points.
When American children hear the word Arab" what is the first thing that comes to mind? Perhaps the imagery of Disneys film Aladdin, a film which has been immensely popular in theaters and on video and is sometimes shown in school classrooms.
Arab Americans have problems with this film. Although in many ways it is charming, artistically

A truly magical theory
Posted by Melanie Phillips
Dame Julia Slingo, Chief Scientist at the UK Met Office, says that while there is ‘not yet definitive proof’, nevertheless ‘all the evidence’ suggests that ‘climate change’ is a contributory factor to the storms and heavy rainfall now causing the devastating floods in southern England.
Cue much respectful reportage of this ‘significant’ attribution by the Met Office (where, incidentally, the anthropogenic global warming scam was first invented in the late 1980s under the influence of Margaret Thatcher who wanted to smash the coal industry, and has b

She was going to see the pandas today if it was the last thing she did. She had primped for the panda and everything! Pig tails and an adorable pink dress. She curtsied and bowed and danced for the panda.
The sad part of this tale, it really was the last thing she did. The panda became so enthralled with her that it fought its way out of that cage and gobbled down the little girl.
