Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: the Way of the Waffle

The research has yet to confirm this, but it is only a matter of time. Waffles are wise. It takes smarts to be that tasty. To so master the art of personal presentation.

When you have aContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: the Way of the Waffle”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: You-tastic

Just because you know you are very cute, talented, pretty and perfect doesn’t automatically mean other beings will agree with you.

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Living the Flavorful Life

Life is full of flavors. When you start racking up the years (heck, decades), you start to notice your life has all the flavors, each at different times perhaps, but overall in fairly equal measure. Salty. Bitter. Sour. Savory. And sweet. This means when a flavor arrives that is less preferred, you can remember itContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Living the Flavorful Life”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Going On Line

When you come from a vocal and social flocking species, social distancing just goes against your very feathery grain. In other words, no one ever made any hay by staying six feet away.

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Feel the Force

Many theories exist about if or how we are all connected. It is a pretty amazing thing to think about. What if we are really more alike than different?

If there wasContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Feel the Force”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Eye Spy

It is no small feat to make it through one or 10 or 21 years of living in the greater food chain o’ life.

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Buckle Up

Life sure can dish out some surprises. Some surprises are quite big and good – like the sudden appearance of an enormous, piping hot, tasty “Grandma’s” waffle the size of your own small feathery body.

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: You Snooze You Win

The large featherless beings have some strange ideas. They have some even stranger sayings. Take “you snooze you lose,” for example. Like….wha?!?! Because everyone knows snoozing is for winners.

You justContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Big Pancake Day”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Nap Fiercely

Just as the small round blue and green planet you share with so many other beings has seasons, you also have seasons.

Some seasons are for growing and some are forContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Nap Fiercely”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Using Your Voice

When you are a very small feathered being in a very big world,  sometimes you may feel like you struggle to be heard. Sure, you have a strident (resonant) shriek. But then again, so do the enormous h.a.w.k.s. from one tree over. Still, you have things to say. Important things. Things other beings need toContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Using Your Voice”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Be the Light

Darkness happens. But it doesn’t only happen at night, when it is wonderful and helps you get your cuteness-enhancing beauty rest. Sometimes darkness also happens during the daytime.

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”
