We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.

Why we have eels in our walls

According to my four-year-old, we have eels living in the walls of our house. This is because, he explains, electric eels make electricity, and electricity comes out of the little outlets in our walls, so there must be eels behind them.

When I asked how the eels survive without water, he said that our walls are filled with water. Cuz water helps make electricity, too.

So there you go.

Your light is seen. Your heart is known. Your soul is cherished by more people than you might imagine. If you knew how many others have been touched in wonderful ways by you, you would be astonished. If you knew how many people feel so much for you, you would be shocked. You are far more wonderful than you think you are. Rest with that. Rest easy with that. Breathe again. You are doing fine. More than fine. Better than fine. You’re doing great. So relax. And love yourself today.

neighboring tattoo and flower shops!AU that I worked on with what-fire-is-in-mine-ears

Daichi buys a building in hopes of being the best florist shop in town(he names it Crows Grows), and even if it’s ironically placed next to a tattoo shop (Neko Ink), he was sure to make his dream happen. The first time Daichi and Kuroo meet, it’s an understatement to say Kuroo was immediately smitten with the country boy constantly surrounded by flowers-Kuroo looks at the small defenseless flower in Daichi’s hands as an offering and is so sure of his abilities of being able to kill it, but when he looks at his new neighbor he just looks so great with a smile Kuroo figures he can take his chances with this flower care thing (A couple months later and it’s safe to say that not only he is impressed when that small flower successfully grows into multiple flowers). Kuroo’s pining gets to the point that if kuroo wasn’t working (To the annoyance of Yaku, and Kenma)you would more often than not find him bugging Daichi next door despite warning glares from the part timers in the flower shop and both the warning and teasing smiles from Daichi’s right hand man, Suga (everyone really loves Daichi and they’ve all made it very clear they’re all perfectly fine with messing with Kuroo’s well being if anything were to happen).


You quarrel is with a father that left you, not with mankind.
