i met a girl today
who was not golden-haired or blue-eyed,
who was not straight-nosed or full-lipped,
who was not long-legged or slender.
instead i met a girl
who sang full-bodied notes in both soprano and alto,
who spoke like a king and walked like a queen,
who had a body curved like the moon.
and that was okay.
i met a boy today
who was not muscular or broad-shouldered,
who was not charming or charismatic,
who was not tall or dark or handsome.
instead i met a boy
who had a memory like an elephant,
who wrote like an angel and drew like Monet,
who could churn out sums like a calculator.
and that was okay.
take a good look in the mirror:
and remember that what you see—
the imperfections and perfections;
the roll of love around your stomach;
the diverging forks at the ends of your hair;
the delicate sprinkles on the bridge of your nose
—is only one layer of who you are,
all of it
(all of you)
is okay, too.
Monday Discussions - SeniorityHey everyone,More Like This
It's Monday again and I'd love your input for an article I'm writing for next week's projecteducate. The article will be about What Seniority means to different people here on dA. Ideally I'd love to hear back from as many of you as possible, that way I can provide more information for the article and hopefully cover a wider range of thoughts in regards to seniority. Anyone and everyone is welcome to leave their thoughts here, senior or not, I want to hear from YOU!
If you aren't familiar with seniority on dA, have a read over :faq29:
This week's questions for you:
What do you feel seniority means on dA?
Do you expect seniors on dA to act a certain way? If so, in what way?
Do you know any seniors?
Do you have any other thoughts to add about seniority on dA?
On a totally unrelated note, everyone should check out http://shop.versusthesea.com/ because mamiffer makes awesome T-Shirt designs! :wh
Deviousness and SeniorityMore Like This
Many have noticed that I've begun posting the Deviousness articles and I'm happy to take any suggestions you may have for future recipients. Simply take a moment to note me with your suggestion and why you feel they are the the deviant to end all deviants and I'll add them to our list for consideration
Some have also noticed that :faq29: has been updated with a suggestion form. The reasoning for this is pretty simple. Selections are made by a group of people, not just me, and having the information in one central location is the easiest way for us to share thoughts. There was always a plan to move suggestions to a form, it just hadn't happened yet
So to recap:
1. Deviousness suggestions -> send me a note or an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
2. Senior suggestions - > please submit your suggestion via this
