" Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love." - Rainer Maria Rilke


scott fry gave me a dragon calendar at work today. I like 'cause it's full of dragons & it also says what day it is.

the dragon from the 1st of may is scarier than yesterday. the fire from his breath looks hot. I really really like dragons a lot.

but a dragon is not your friend, my friend.
he'll get you in the end, my friend.
he'll lure you to his lair & then...
he'll make you wish that you were never born
'cause his heart is full of scorn

a dragon calendar counts down the days till next week & the months & weeks that follow in a haze with vexing regularity.

you should have known, this dragon from the start, was hoarding treasure in his heart. He'll dazzle you. you'll think he's good, but you will end up dragon food 'cause...

a dragon is not your friend, my friend :/
