The boy-geeks holding up the MIT Pro-Life table in the student center.
How very pompous and how very right-wing male, meddling-in-my-business of them. I wonder how they would stand if the issue of Pro-Life vs. Pro-Choice were to actually become their business. Girl-geek gets knocked-up--Do they leave their education behind and get a job to care for the new family?
I was tempted to pose this question but channeled the wisdom of my favorite and best life editor, Mr. Mallet.

Good luck, in the form of The Great Albino Squirrel of Jamaica Pond, presented itself yesterday.
As we drove past the pond I said to my dear husband, “I wonder if the albino squirrel is still alive”--it had been a year since we'd seen him/her last. Not more than 2 seconds later, The Great White One appeared beside the road. My excitement nearly cost Alex his eardrum.
I feel pretty dang lucky to have invoked the spirit of The Great White One. I imagine people who pray to god wish he/she would show up like that.

'Flora, In A New Light' is the title I've given my random creations. If I had to describe my intention I'd say "Tis a shoutout to autumn and a tribute to expiring fruits and flowers everywhere."
In case it came to mind: 1. Yes, I'm being melodramatic 2. Yes, the cucumber is a fruit.
Below are samples.
