1120 – "She Did Not Need Much", a poem by Starra Neely Blade

She did not need much,
wanted very little.
A kind word, sincerity,
fresh air, clean water,
a garden, kisses,
books to read,
sheltering arms, a cosy bed,
and to love and be loved in return.

-Starra Neely Blade


1099 – "Intention is a universal language. It is the law of gravity between souls. Try, if you must, to fool the stars. Or each other. But this is an agreement four billion years old. Because nothing can be kept from the salt in the sea, from the push and pull of right and wrong. Because it has never been about what you say, but where you speak from."

-Mia Hollow


1061 – "A friend loves you for your intelligence, a mistress for your charm, but your family's love is unreasoning; you were born into it and are of its flesh and blood. Nevertheless it can irritate you more than any group of people in the world."

-André Maurois

I wish you all a Merry Christmas, may your families not irritate you much!
