"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

she shell

this is the picture of our tandem: she’s the angel without wings. i’m the demon without the pitchfork. she represents silence. i represent noise. if she’s good, then i’m evil. if she were a jedi, i’d be a sith. people who know us can attest that we’re opposites. fortunately, we don’t really clash.

we're so different. the only things we have in common are high honors and eyebags. but those are not the reasons why we're best friends.

we're best friends because we just are!

02.18.07. with my best friend in all the world, in all the universe.

this, despite the fact that we very seldom see each other.

sure, most of the time, i'm somewhere with other people but it really doesn't matter where i am and who i'm with. wherever i find myself, whoever i'm with, whenever i'm asked who my best friend is, i only have one answer. she is.

because she truly is!

if there's one person i know whose personality radiates with genuine kindness and whose existence inspires people to believe in the possibility of world peace, that's her.

because she's such a positive influence in my life... my greatest achievement, so far, is being her best friend.

i know i've said that before but, hey, that's something worth saying again and again.

p.s. she's celebrating her birthday this week. there are many ways of greeting a person happy birthday and this is one of those. join me in saying, HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHELL!
