Why does the sea always weep?

Drina and her mom got home, and Drina stopped the car in the driveway. Michael Taylor, (or Mike Senior,) was turning off the sprinkler system. 'Mike, I thought I told you to get some rest today!' exclaimed Drina's mom. Mike smiled. 'I did! I'm all rested up, and I'll get more tonight. How are my girls!' 'Hi, Dad!' said Drina. Mike pecked, first Drina, then her mom, on the cheek. 'I'm going to make dinner,' said Drina. 'Would either of you like a drink while you wait?' 'Some chamomile tea would be wonderful,' said Drina's mom. 'Not for me, Cupcake,' said Drina's dad. 'I don't want to overdo it this close to mealtime.' Drina left them on the

Drina loved picking her mom up from work. The lady in question, Mrs Anna Taylor, was a receptionist for The Diamond Dust Spa, which was the most superfluous business in town. Walking into the front of the spa was like walking into a world swathed in silk and money. It boasted the aroma of floral room mist, expensive shampoo, lipstick, and exclusively clean disinfectant. Drina's mom worked at the reception desk in the spa shop, which sold all sorts of overpriced beauty, hair and health products. Drina didn't need anything there that she couldn't get for a tenth of the price anywhere else, but it was one of those places that just felt nice. The

It was always coffee'o'clock at Crackle's. That wasn't a slogan or anything. It was just that they had one of those kitsch little clocks with several twee, descriptive o'clocks at the different points on the face. Drina had put it on 'Coffee'o'Clock' about five years ago, and nobody ever bothered to change it. It was possible that very few people even noticed it. Crackle's was popular enough to have loads of atmosphere and a constant supply of fresh coffee, but not so popular that you could never find a table or that you struggled to hear other people speaking. Crackles smelled of brewing coffee and crackling bacon; old wood and crisp books.

Features: Self Care

Features: Self Care

Well, then, how to start? Everything is a mess right now, isn't it? So, I thought that for the features I wanted to do, a good theme would be 'Self Care'. So, without further ado, let's delve into art that represents the concept of self care, created by a variety of talented artists on this site. I think the subject of this first piece is very clear, even before you see the very pertinent title. The vibrancy, colors and tenderness of it have stuck with me ever since I first saw it. For an added plus, see the description for a little lift and some self care inspiration. Thank you to the very talented @DestinyBlue ! Sometimes, I get a little meta, so I will do that now: Self care isn't always about what is represented on the paper. Sometimes, self care is about the act of creating itself. Here is one such work of art: A portrait of the artist's cat, Rosie, in stunning detail. I have no doubt that the creative process was a wonderful experience for the artist, even
