Few conflicts in life will fail to be improved by a judicious application of these:
I’m totally serious! See?

Honestly, a bag of a dozen clown noses will brighten any day immeasurably! I discovered this to be true because the [...]

Here is a shot that Sophie got of me going about my Honeymilk Farm chores this morning. I look really sleepy. She said I should put it on the blog, though, so I am. I love how her photos are from such a different perspective (three feet off the ground). Often when she takes pictures [...]

“Come on, Maya, we want to show you something (hee hee hee!).”
