It's been a long day,
and I thought that when
I sat for a nap, I would wake up
in Tomorrow.
But it's still Today.

You are still standing
in the shadowed corner of the public
where the sun bounces off your glasses,
and each sunspot forces
my eyes to turn again.

Even when I turn around,
the soft glimmer catches my eye.

Fading so slow,
as if I should give up,
your silhouette remains,
demanding to be seen
by those who know of its weight.

It's been a long game,
I've both won and lost
the best and the worst prize
all in three months time
at the end of a long eight years;
but your grip on my hands
won't let me drop the dice.
Getting some thoughts down.
I always write best on the DA submission page. It's the one thing that hasn't changed since I created my account so long ago.

Hello, I'm Laura, and I will be your tour guide this evening.

To the left, you see the Hall of Love. Don't touch the walls, for they have beads of sap leaking out. It does taste good though, but be warned; too much will cause slight to severe depression for an unknown amount of time. I don't know much about love, I'm in a firm believer.

To the right is the Visualization Hall, where many drawings, sketches, and photographs can be found. I often find myself questing what the artist's intended meaning is... Don't stare too long, you might accidentally make up something that wasn't there before.

If you go farther down the main hall, you will find the Virtual Reality testing room. It has rarely been tested. The most common experience noted is the ability to turn scents into place-memories, placing colors with feelings, and turning situations into metaphors.

Please, enjoy your visit. Ask any questions that surface in your mind, and don't forget to leave friendly criticism in each work's comment booklet. Your assistance and compliance is much appreciated, and you will be rewarded with these very peculiar, very rare 'Llama Badges.'

Journal History

So, a trend that I've noticed among my friends on here before me, once they have gone off to college, they are less and less frequent on this website. i find that I'm doing the same. I was in the process of uploading all my high school stuff, but i kinda stopped… I think it's because I'm spending more time out participating and learning and creating. Sorry if y'all were interested in my art, that I've kept you waiting. I'm going to go edit some things now and upload them, hopefully in order.

Thank you very much for the beautiful llama. He's so soft and fuzzy :3 He has joined his fifty something brothers in the backyard and is now munching on some llama food. Thank you very much!
