Philadelphia Hale Is

A drop in the bucket. A fish in the sea. A dot on the horizon. A twinkle in the night. A flash in the pan. A double-edged sword.

My favorite diaries:

a177 profile - diary
comments: a politically-minded haiku lover, finding the space between cliches. The kind of intelligence nobody knows what to do with--least of all him.
squirrelx profile - diary
comments: a girl with her priorities in order, doing her best for the people, human and otherwise, in her life. I admire her talents, her high-heels-and-head-chef femininity, and her knack for seeing the humor in everything.
