Moral of that storay? Don't listen to a stinkin' word of what any talking snake tells you, kiddo--no matter how charming or gallant he seems to be, savvy?-- and you'll do fine by King you-know-who upstairs. Now, get outta here. With yr chutzpah, yll knock 'em dead.

Beautiful. What a great week of posts. "Eve changed the world," indeed, and I believe that anyone bearing that lovely name has the right to imagine herself as the first woman, in the garden, on the Eve of the forever felicitous fall. Thank you, Eve. --DL

on when I
left the house

of coming back

in the dark
