Time for yet another update...
Hi. *waves enthusiastically* I'm Daniella and I'm 17. This may really surprise you, but I love to write. *shock* *horror* I started writing poetry in around second grade or something, so I guess you have to get SOMETHING relatively readable in ten years of, ahem, working on it. I only started writing poetry that seemed decent somehow around three years ago. Which just goes to prove...
I'm an American-Israeli, having "made aliyah" (immigrated to Israel) seven and a half years ago, when I was around ten years old. At first I hated it. Now I can't live anywhere else.
Anyway. Why Sunflower Philosophy? Because sunflowers are my favorite flowers. Why? They're everything optimistic in this awesome world of ours- bright, yellow, huge, giving (seeds...), and always tilting towards the sun EVEN... *waits for droning chorus of "On a cloudy day..."*
I have lots of friends on this site! Let's see. There's Jupgrrl, my crazy older sister who writes breathtaking poetry and bribes me into listening to her rant about her boyfriend/fiance by stuffing chocolate down my throat (not a bad exchange, really...); Minihaha, my beautiful and adorable close friend, to whom a few of my poems were written- I still haven't managed to convince her to post more poems, but I will! I will, I tell you!!!... There's Strongwind, another friend of mine who works very hard on keeping to herself about her problems, but gives me a glance at them through her beautiful writing; MagenDavid, the adorable girl who lives on the other side of my wall (we have a whole code of communication- hey Rose! Knock knock knock!); and the Happy-Platipus herself, a highly entertaining and amusingly philosophical human being, for whom the spelling of the word "platypus" is of no importance in comparison to the cosmic reasoning behind the creation of the universe.
Have a great summer, y'all!
