“peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.”
(a highly-compensated re-enactor above,
showing my expression and hair at sign-in)
while signing-in at the salon
i asked the receptionist
what the date was
to which she replied,
“oh, let me look. it changes every day. this keeps happening.”
i nodded in agreement and finished signing in.
‘drawing on my fine command of the english language, i said nothing.”

creates a beautiful and comfortable bed
for the rhino with the broken foot
so that he has a place to lie down
and recover in peace.
“as great scientists have said and as all children know,
it is above all by the imagination
that we achieve perception, and compassion, and hope.”

the ponies and friends all came out for the dance party
this time is was a love fest and tea
everyone was welcome
all colors, sizes, shapes and species
they were in their finest fancy fashions
and ready to have fun.
one pony told them she didn’t want to come
because it looked like a boring party
they were kind of sad but then they thought
maybe some other ponies had been mean to her once
and she was just acting that way
because she didn’t want to get her feelings hurt again
so they invited her back and showed her how to be nice.
“kindness is always fashionable, and always welcome.”
