The Story of my Blog Title

Quilt of Dragonflies- My blog is named that for a reason.I am lucky enough to own a genuine Quilt of Dragonflies, which I am sure brings me good dreams when I sleep beneath it. It was given to me by a friend of my mother's, who handmade the entire thing. Color meets pattern in this fantastic piece of artwork which sits on my bed. Brilliant shades of purple, blue, and green intersperse with tie dye dragonflies. I will not hesitate to call it my inspiration.

Owenus Digestivus Theorem

ladies and gentlemen:
the Owenus Digestivus Theorem
the incredible system of food 
in an eleven year old's body
one small compartment for food
one for drink and another
just for dessert
he can be full of food
plenty of room for dessert
"no mom
not one more bite"
but pie on the other hand...
the mother whispers, "he shall eat cake
and have room for dessert. always room for dessert."
The Owenus Digestivus Theorem
us kids have proof it is real
he picks apart the chicken
stuffs his face with ice cream
strange. some kind of
what are these
mother swears to go to her grave
"he will always have dessert." 

Here lies a Mother. There is always room for dessert.
