Favorite Quote:
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. -Helen Keller


Somedays, Chopin and my cat are the only friends I've got.
But if we are feeling extra amiable, we will invite Debussy, as well.
Cat will sit on the edge of the sink, watching the water swirl slowly down the drain, her tail twitching in time with the music.
My long locks tend to escape my hairbrush and clog the sink;
And Cat will
fearfully,
timidly,
delicately,
dip her paw in the cool water.
And we all know what happens;
Cat flicks her paw, surprised, even though she knows what happens every time.
But I don't scold Cat when she casts water in my face.
Instead I laugh.

The author's comments:
As human beings we all make mistakes in life. And oftentimes, we don't learn the first few times we make them. That is why it is important to embrace and learn from them. I hope that you will be able to get something out of my poem knowing that.
