When in Doubt, Color your World

So, before everyone I know gets worried that I'm depressed, let me say I'm fine - nothing a little sleep won't make better. That, and coloring one's hair always helps. Yup, I know it'll freak out a lot of people, but I went brunette - I think I like it, though I don't recognize myself in the mirror again. I do this every year or so - get tired of whatever my current look is, and reinvent.

You can see this phenomenon here.

Yeah I know mom, I look like someone else's daughter, and like I've just sold my kingdom. I dare anyone to try taking a picture with a phone, against the bathroom wall at 1 am.

Alrighty, I'm heading to bed, at a relatively decent hour for me, too.

The love of my life
     stares at me.
Big brown eyes
               and a nose,
Telling me,
     I'd be much more
Curled up
     in bed
In a furry puppy embrace.

Night night, A

My dearest daugter, when in doubt blame a man is the only right expression. I, too, was sad to leave you. But that is just what life is all about: to gain something you have to leave something behind; although it makes one feel sad. It feels so much nicer then to gain that something again. If it's just to meet againAnd that does not cost much... Dad

See why I'm sad he's gone? Because he offers unconditional love, and support, and wisdom - he's like the definition of what a dad should be like. And he's funny - 'when in doubt, blame a man' indeed! No men here right now to blame. Bugger Bugger! -AJ
