Awake

You said I would have you forever, the one constant in my life, my bedrock, solid, unshifting, eternal. But when I woke today you weren't there, and the house was cold with the emptiness that comes from being left behind. Oddly enough, I didn't mind it. Perhaps it started when you met my Mother, "The daughter of Uncertainty? I thought you were only joking!", you never seemed quite comfortable that a house of cards and sliding mirrors should be my childhood home. "We'll find a nice place in the City." you said, "Steel beams and concrete floors." I wanted to show you my past, the good and the bad, all of it, so you could understand how I be

Eulogy for an Ex- bestfriend

Eulogy for an Ex- bestfriend

When I was just a little girl my Mother taught me very well to clean and cook and sew and be a gracious lady in all things but most of all " To thine own self be True." and to render thanks wherever it's due. So thanks for nothing, darling, may you never get to say that I did not acknowledge fully exactly what you gave.

3 a.m. in the Dorms

Thy overzealous practicing is grating to mine ears and destroys my nerves entirely, wearing my patience thinner than the wall that separates me from thee and that nefarious instrument of torture you call an "Accordion".

Scarlet Letters

Scarlet Letters

 Another one came today. Another letter with the funny seal and bright red words like poppy flowers strewn across the page. I don't remember when they started coming; cooped up in my white walled sanctuary, weeks and months blend into one another and time seems to hold no sway here - just one endless day and night following another, each one the same, except...some days, a letter comes. And they are all different; newsy, contemplative, amusing or serious by turn, they make me smile, and sigh, and cry, and once... once I even laughed. And I started counting again. Counting the days between the letters, eager, impatient even, for the next o

Love is...

Love is...

Love is random kisses and washing the dishes even when it's not your job. Love is a tiny hand that grips so tight it pulls at all your heartstrings and makes its self a little nest safe within your arms. Love is telling a friend when they're making a mistake and even when they hate you you watch them from the shadows so that you'll still be there for them, to catch them when they fall. Love is second chances, giving time and sharing knowledge to restore Dignity and Hope to that girl on the corner. Love is risking your all to save that which isn't yours nor ever will be, or dying so that what you love might live. Lo

Everything Changes

Everything Changes

Hello to Friends Old and New! Life can be funny thing; one day your a lonely, depressed, socially awkward recluse, and the next you realize that if you want things to change, the best place to start is with yourself. So you reevaluate, reorganize and reconnoiter. You get up, go out, and start giving of yourself; instead of expecting Others to help you, you seek out ways to help Others. You meet Someone. You start to talk, and they aren't scared off by how different you are. Maybe you even become friends. They invite you into their life, introduce you to new people, new experiences, new ways of looking at things, and slowly, your world start

When you're feeling down, remember...

"Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole live believing it is stupid."                                                                                                                               - Albert Einstein Pretty smart guy, that Einstein fellow. ;) Personally, I think I'd be a koala. Or maybe a goldfish. With spider tendencies.

And I didn't trip or make a fool of myself either!

And I didn't trip or make a fool of myself either!

I know I've been rather absent on DA lately, but I have some Good News! On Tuesday, I attended my first Art class EVER, and despite being jacked up on medicine (Allergies + stomach virus = REALLY BAD EGGS, DRINK UP ME HEARTIES, YO HO!*chases after Captain Jack, who just hijacked the aside*) and therefore being rather out of it, it was a really fun class and I actually learned something!:wow: *amazed gasp*  Now I know you're  probably thinking "Um, yeah, isn't that the point of going to class? To learn?", but you see, I almost-never-hardly-ever learn anything in the first class, or the second, and maybe even the third, but by that point I've

I just had the biggest jaw drop reading your deviant ID because I used to say this a lot too: "I'm a pessimistic optimist with realist tendencies" I've never seen anyone who also says it so I had a tiny squealing moment there. 

Anyway, beautiful gallery and very nice designs :)
