tree with strangler vines

Energy Vampires Are Like Strangler Vines

Energy vampires are like strangler vines on trees. They grow around the tree, and at first, it seems like a symbiotic relationship. Someone I know – a Taurus, oddly enough – is having to cut a strangler vine off his tree. It is a prick of a job as once they have latched on; the Strangler Vines do not want to let go.

origins of Valentine's Day - ancient Saint Valentine picture on stained glass

Valentine’s Day – The Men, The Myths, The Wolves.

The origins of Valentine’s Day are shrouded by flowery sentiment because it was in fact super bloody and more like a bad day in Westeros. Of all the Hallmark Holidays, Valentine’s Day is the worst. Single people are never so screwed (not literally) as they are on V-Day. On regular festive occasions like Thanksgiving, your Aunt Tina is there to remind you to sit at the “single, unmarried table.” But …
