As wonderful and safe perfect and magical as the Unicorn's life was before she began her quest, it was incomplete. She had to become a mortal girl to learn how to love. And though it was a painful lesson for her, and it changed her forever, still it was a good thing. And on days when I am cursing my physical body for the evil tricks it plays on me through my illness, it is comforting to remember that being a mortal girl may provide invaluable lessons for me as well.

I have started a campaign to raise funds for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome research! There is a desperate need for more answers about the disease. From now until August 31s, 50% of all profits from print sales and my online self-discovery-through-photography course Introspective will be donated to the CFIDS; an organization actively doing research into CFS. You can also donate directly to the CFIDS, of course.
