so let me ask you this: do you take your self and its image, and hold it in your warm hands, hold it close to your chest &/or heart until it is soft and malleable, and then carefully mold it into what you want to see, in the mirror? whatever mirror applies, from the glass ones to the internal ones, oh and of course, the world?

  1. kd – you and I would DEFINITELY have been friends in high school. I wrote an entire Latin exam backwards once.

    So I’ll jst say…erm… KD RULEZ!

  7. actually, i can read in mirrors — and i’m very nosy and can read things across desks which are upside down. i can also write in both directions at once (forward with the right, backward with the left).
