Take a Shower

Wash away the old, bad, and irrelevant. Let it sink down the drain like the mud and dirt it is.

363 – The Princess

She’s a chapstick bandit

Loves gummies and candy

Super sweet with sass

So helpful, yet so bad

She’s an angel from above

With some fire from below

Loves barbies and makeup

And motorcycles and reptiles

Catches frogs at dawn

In a sparkly princess dress

Dances to Jesus Loves Me

And all things Cocomelon

Likes action movies and heroes

Unicorns and ponies

Doesn’t eat much

But she’ll always eat

Chips and French fries

Loves her momma

Loves her brothers

Loves her sister too

Though they butt heads

They’re much the same

Sweet like her momma

Stubborn like her daddy

Dinosaurs and unicorns

She likes to cuddle at night

She cares for her babies

And does what she wants

She tries to be grown

While sucking her thumb

She likes being the boss

The boss of everyone

She was just an infant

When we met

But even back then I knew

We were destined to be

Best friends

362 – Always Us Against the World

Remember when it was just you and me against the world, Collin?

Hey, little man. I want you to know it still is. We’re a team, bud. We’ll always be a team no matter how many companions we add to our pack.

We have a special bond, you and I. A special relationship no one else could understand. It’s us against the world, now and forever.

You’re my boy and you came to me when I needed you most. We needed each other, little guy. You with that beautiful black shiny coat and me with my beautiful black shiny soul. We were destined to find one another.

So please don’t be jealous or think I’ve forgotten our time spent alone together. You’re mine and I’m yours, boy. It’s us against the world until the end of time.

358 – Why is Creativity Frowned Upon?

I think we stop creating when we realize that it doesn’t “make sense” to do it anymore.

Why do you waste time writing cruddy poems? Why do you spend your free days drawing terrible pictures no one will ever see?

No one’s ever going to buy your books or see your art in a gallery, so why do it? It doesn’t pay the bills so what’s the point?

And so we “grow up “ and leave the art behind. Musicians, painters, poets, writers, sculptors- we all stop our art because we have always been told it’s a waste of time. If you’re not a prodigy or making an income from art, then it’s futile.

We lose ourselves too. Losing imagination. Succumbing to society.

357 – Loving Pets Too Much

It is both a blessing and a curse to love these animals so very deeply.

When they pass on, it’s a silver bullet through my sensitive heart. I mourn like a mother mourns a lost child. It’s pain so excruciating I wonder why I ever get myself into these vulnerable situations.

But when they’re here – oh man, it’s all worth it. All those kisses and warm feelings, seeing how excited they get when I get back home, wagging tails, soft cuddles, long walks – it adds so much joy to life. Companionship, loyalty, bonds…family.

Yes, it’s painful when they go. And it hurts when they’re no longer around. But every ounce of pain is worth every moment of joy and happiness they brought into my life.

Thank you, furry companions – past, present, and future – for the heartwarming happiness you have / will have given me.

356 – Dogs vs. People

8:19 a.m.) Dogs will be dogs. People will be people. And that one is much worse, if we’re all being honest. People are so unpredictable.

Thinking about the recent case in the news of a murdered young woman, people are so volatile. I mean, the boyfriend may not have done it in this case – no one knows for sure yet – but there are hundreds of cases where a couple is married or together for years without obvious signs of violence before one snaps and murders the other. Sometimes it seems to come out of absolutely nowhere.

It’s scary because everyone thinks they know the people around them well, but do we really have any idea?

Dogs are more consistent. I’ll stick with dogs. Cats, on the other hand – God only knows what they’re capable of. But at least they’re soft and adorable.
