If Life is Enjoyed

Did you ever wonder why the weasel goes pop?
Or why rock-a-bye baby rocks in a tree top?
When poor Humpty Dumpty had his calamity
How ever did the horses know his anatomy?
If you ever find a way to catch a tiger’s toe
Or find a magic spell that makes your ears grow
Don’t bother telling me, for my heart now consents
If life is enjoyed, does it have to make sense?

Time seems to wrinkle, and stars seem to twinkle
Nickels are larger than dimes, and songs don't always rhyme
Without a map, without a plan, on this voyage we'll embark
Maybe we are only playing riddles in the dark
And maybe, just maybe, God may have made this land
For humans to enjoy, and not to understand
I've never seen you whence, likely not ever hence
Remember that a beautiful world will not ever make sense.

An Ode to StoryMonster

Oooh goody, that was fun, wasn't it? I promise y'all many more Miss Adventures this coming year. BUT IN THE MEANTIME, you guys need to check out Miss Heather Dixon's blog StoryMonster.

'Cause yeah. It's kind of awesome.

My sister stumbled across it one day and immediately sent it to me. I got kinda excited. You really should look at some of it, because not only is her artwork fabulous, it's where I got the idea to write my summer misadventures.

I also discovered THIS.

The Invention of Love

It's the most tragical thing you'll see all week. SAD IS HAPPY FOR DEEP PEOPLE OKAY

In other news, I've been working on a song which I'll be posting sometime soon and I'm super excited about it. Stay awesome friendos.

(I really really like this picture)

The Princess with the Healing Hands

A Christmas present I made for a young lady. Brownie points if you can guess what book it's from.
