Oh lil' Sister, thou doth ponder the very soul of being, stirring the power of passion in every pot, is what makes you so special...you see with very special eyes!!! I know you believe, as I do as well!

I'm goofing off today, too cold to venture out, so I think I'll head over to Tildas' place and sit a spell, have a wonderfully passion filled day little friend!

Thanks for the java!

Big sister...
