An Out-of-the-Ordinary kind 
of day, where everything that shines, 
has lots of sparkle to it.


Your free soul is worth knowing!

Just be the person you are.

Every bug needs his own spot.

If the bug above isn't critter-enough-

Here's an adorable sweet critter face!

One can only sparkle by living.

Let the water speak to you.

Being locked up you'll never sparkle!

It pays to wander and let
 your adventures fall as they may!

Friends are family, we sparkle with!

Be who you are and sparkle!

Thanks for stopping by here today, 
your presence always makes me sparkle!

Very bright - in fact, sparkly! I'm still thinking about the VW Beetle being who s/he is..! A souped-up something bursting out of its ordinary skin.
