  • I am not a girl, I am a woman. But I feel like a girl inside. Trapped, all the color sucked out of me, the life gone.

    This is how I feel when I spend too much time on the computer. The computer takes on a life of it's own while my real life fades into the shadows.

    Cowbird can be an addition.

    Dedicated to Angie, and to Kiki Suarez for her hole in the heart story, and to Robert Verney for his lovely simple drawings.
