Have A Heart

Ah, Valentine's Day!  What better day to talk about the heart?  While in some ways, it's just another commercialized holiday...it's also a day where the pressure is on.  If you’re lucky enough to be in a relationship, you better shower your lover with gifts; and if you’re single, well, you just sigh and vow that… Continue reading Have A Heart

Make a Wish!

On my walk the other day, I looked down to see a lone dandelion in its cotton-like seed phase.  Childhood memories flooded my mind, of picking them and blowing the seeds.  As they floated away, so did my wishes…carried off to meet the fairies, who would then set out to grant them.  Ah, carefree days… Continue reading Make a Wish!
