I love this. It flies in the face of expectation, while giving a gentle nod to tradition. Great job.

ugh most of them are humans, and the ones that aren't are hidden so deep within that they might as well be... oh I have had to surround myself with such hurtful thoughts in order to reach my goals... and now my chance at the goal is being pulled from me... oh these are the people that are going to be ruining the world in a decade... what to do?

The comment on resistance and the life less ordinary. I agree, and it's worth remembering.

Where on earth-or, you know what I mean-do you get all of those clock hands, Porkshanks?

Were the tentacles formerly tails of seahorse charms, or similar?

It is rather lovely. I especially like the chain you have suspended it from, and the use of key.

clock hands are generally from clocks that I take apart... yep those were seahorse stampings, and thank you!

Thankyou. even though i know damn well that your words are certainly not directed at myself personally, after the family bollocks that i just experienced over father's day, I needed words like that.

I sometimes forget that the resistance and dissaproval means that i am doing my own thing as i should be, and not falling into the pack of acceptability.

Inspiration. Perfect timing.

thankyou.

OH, and besides all that, tis a WONDERFUL necklace too. :)

thank you for telling me that...

as long as you feel comfortable that your choices are correct... keep in mind that often people around you will have a vested interest in you not growing and changing as a person. Change is scary XD

i make the best decision/s I can, taking into account the people, resources and situation around me. Some of them have been the wrong decisions over the years, but name a person who hasn't made mistakes.... I just do the best i can.

the more I become me myself and I (rather than what i am 'supposed' or 'expected' to be) the less my family are happy. tis sad really. They seem unable to simply be happy that i am happy.

Oh well, that's just who i ended up with. there are far worse off than me out there.

Very true. :)
