You canContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Be the Light”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Molti-tasking

When you are a card-carrying member of the food chain o’ life, multi-tasking is just one of your many super powers. “Staying alive” is, of course, your number one super power.

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Taking a Stand

Interspecies relationships can be complicated. There are lots of reasons why. One reason is the all-too-common tendency towards using labels. “Cutest.” “Hungriest.” “Loudest.” “Fiercest.” “Snooziest.” Sure, maybe you are the cutest flock member (this being self-evident, since you are also the only flock member who is covered in soft downy feathers). But this doesn’t mean youContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Taking a Stand”

When you live in an interspecies flock, and you are all cooped up together because some (alleged) infectious particles have gotten loose and are on the lam, it is nice to find some hobbies you can all enjoy doing together.

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Calling for Backup

Sometimes – and no matter how cute you might be – life just happens. You specifically ordered your day to go one way. It goes someplace else.

Give itContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Calling for Backup”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Be the Change

Cohabitating on a small round blue planet with other beings of all shapes and sizes and species can only mean one thing: Every being is needed. (Even the beings with shells, oddly enough).

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: When Life Hands You Potatoes

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: A Beak-on of Hope

If there is one fact you can always count on in life, it is this: Someone, somewhere, is always out looking for lunch.

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Waffle Wingman

Live amongst the large featherless species for long enough and you will notice they have some very strange flocking rituals. Take the “wingman,” for example.

Yet the large featherless beings seem to think itContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Waffle Wingman”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Reach Out and Bite Someone

Sometimes no matter what you do – or how cute you are – life simply refuses to do what you tell it to do. You say “scratch neck feathers.” It gives you a shower. You say “bring waffles.” It brings spinach. You say “spring migration.” It brings you instructions for sheltering in place. Sheesh. IfContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Reach Out and Bite Someone”

This world serves up so many lessons even on a daily basis. It can feel unrealistic – at best – to expect to learn them all.

Round is clearly the best shape,Continue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Love Makes the World Go Round”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Strike While the Waffle Iron Is Hot

The large featherless beings can have some very strange ideas about things. Take the word “waffling,” for instance. Your large featherless assistant uses this word in all kinds of odd ways.

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Going All In
