A writing exercise...

I think I fell for you yesterday.  Just the slightest bit. There was an almost imperceptible shift and if I hadn't been paying attention, I might have missed it. I might have brushed it off as 'a moment' and let it go.  But I felt it, that little tremor, and my mind went "What was that?"

A deepening of fondness. A little heart flutter and a funny stomach flip flop that had never happened before when I looked at you.

It was there and gone, but not truly gone. Just subsided. A match struck on sandpaper, flaring to life and then promptly blown out, leaving a little glow behind. Firefly sized. I can tell because when I concentrate, the feeling's still there. It's small and warm and easily excusable as something else.  Easily deniable for now, anyway.

I still have my walls, the parapets and ramparts which protect me. They'll keep the glow inside, keep it hidden until I know whether to fan the flames or douse them.

But you've been working at coming in. You've been waiting at the gate, seeing if the drawbridge will lower for you, noticing no soldiers on the walls to chase you away. Bit by bit, that bridge is being extended by coaxing words and oh, there is fear that you'll see that little light I hid and be displeased that it is there.

Because I think I fell for you yesterday. Just a bit.

Writer's Block: Top Dog

[Error: unknown template qotd]

My vote goes to the Miniature Schnauzer. I grew up with a pair of these lovable sweeties, and I can't imagine wanting to own another kind of dog, with perhaps the exception of a Scottie. They're adorable, and enjoy being around people. I remember when anyone was watching TV on the couch, Tasha and Tania would be right there, snuggling right alongside. They slept at the foot of my parents' bed, and loved going for walks. They follow you from room to room, not begging for attention, but just needing to be nearby. They're crate trainable, don't shed, and are great for families. I can't wait until I am able to afford a puppy from a breeder, or am able to adopt one from a Schnauzer rescue.

An interesting meme type thing

Stolen from friends who stole it from other friends, etc.


Is there something you've always/recently wanted to say to me/ Multiple things you want to say to me?


Leave it in an ANONYMOUS comment, IP addresses will not be logged, and don't flame other people for their comments, that's just not cool and will not be tolerated.


...I'd just be interested to see if in fact anyone does indeed have something they want to say, but I won't get all emo if nobody does.



*Edit* Ha, this HAS to be public so that people can actually post anonymous comments.. This should be interesting.
