Of Wishing Wells and Flowing Fountains

| May 12, 2013

I like wells best of all. I imagine them full to the brim with wishes; hardly able to contain all the hushed yearnings of lovers and beloveds. Should one stick his head inside, the sibilant swshswsh can still be heard amidst snatches of whispered longings. How do they make wishes come true? I never toss [...]

Flowers would have been too easy

| February 13, 2013
