Sometimes a heart feels

Every wisp of wind that blows

Someone’s tears around

When a heart is filled

To its breaking point with tears

A wisp of wind knows

  1. Emotions do seem much like the wind. You can’t see them but you feel as they pass by. It’s so hard when asking people, “What’s wrong” and they say “nothing.” It means they don’t want to talk about it, but you still feel it as you walk into a room and the scent lingers as you walk out the door.

  4. I writing for my stupid human Andrew. He has had a little too much pre-Christmas cheer at the moment to be coherent. But he did want me to ask you one question. So here it is: Why, when he is “following” you, he doesn’t get any damn email notifications? How is he to know when to come over here to bitch and moan if he doesn’t know when his favorite blonde is posting?
    Anyway, those are Andrew’s questions. But I might also add that I like you too, Blondie. So send us a damn email once and awhile!!!

    • Aw, Danny! I wish I understood the inner workings of the email system for this blog. I am following Andrew (don’t tell him, I wouldn’t want him to always be looking over his shoulder) and I receive an email every time HE posts… Perhaps there is a place in either the management area of the blogs he follows or even on my page (somewhere) that says, one can receive an email notification. So, my favorite DTD, take care of Andrew, help guide him through this wild and wacky maze of Word Press confusion. Oh and are you sure you wouldn’t rather have some turkey instead of an email? xoxox
