I am UmberDove.

And by that, I mean an artist.  One who hears stories in the wind, who paints because it is what her soul tells her to do, who smiths because the muse moves through her fingertips, who loves nothing more than the promise of an unexplored trail, the sound of the ocean in her ears, and scent of a serious cup of coffee.


The Friday Confessional, July 3rd


Confession Number 221: I wander around the house while I brush my teeth. Sometimes for upwards of ten minutes, I'll be perusing the closet, watching the kitty boys play, checking the computer, opening mail, you name it. In fact, it's very difficult for me to even stay in the bathroom while brushing. The bristles come out and my feet just itch to wander. But here is where stuff gets hypocritical: Other people brushing their teeth, specifically spitting out toothpaste, triggers gag reflex so fast it's dangerous. Blech. Just thinking about it... eew.

(I also decided to go photo-free for this blog - because honestly, you don't need to see any pictures of me and my teeth AND I don't want to hear of any gagging!)
