Dot the One Eyed Monster

Once there was a one eyed monster named Dot.  She had only one eye. Dot had lots of dots all along her arms and feet and even above her one eye. It wasn't easy for Dot, be a one eyed monster, especially since she was the only one with so many dots. She often wished someone whould just ignore her dots for once. No one ever seemed to notice other traits, just her one eye, and the dots. She just wished she could find a monster friend who would understand.

Thought provoking Poem

Desiderata by Max Ehrmann

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.

Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as …
