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

Being Brave with Bruce: Claws of Comfort

Being Brave with Bruce: the Many Faces of Brave

It is easy to think of “brave” as being only when you are presenting your full-on, nostrils-first, wide-eyed, out-in-the-open self to the world. To face the scary things.

Sometimes the bravest thing you can doContinue reading “Being Brave with Bruce: the Many Faces of Brave”

Resting in Place with Malti: N-Okay Days

Some days, life is a-okay. The papaya is flowing. The water is so crisp and refreshing it tastes like a whole school of (Grandma’s organic steamed) salmon just swam through it. All is well.

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.

Being Brave with Bruce: Putting Yourself Out There

Being born with a (cute, curved) shell on your back doesn’t always means you will turn out to be an introvert. But it is a pretty safe bet. That shell can just look too tempting, feel too comforting.

Resting in Place with Malti: Put Your Feet Up

If there is one truth you can count on, it is this…. The world isn’t getting any less complicated. Or any less crowded. Or any less crazy.
