Missing you

Image
It's been 41 years today since I lost my mother. I was young, yes, but I remember that night like it was only hours ago. 
It's difficult losing your parents.  It's a crappy club to be a part of, but one many join.  I hope my mother watches over me, and looks upon me with pride.  31 years. I still miss you like yesterday.

I know, and knew going in, that part of the struggle I would have with the success of the Serpenteens series, is the large number of people who have an aversion to snakes.  That's okay, I understand.  I have the same fear of spiders (If I see one in my house, my respect for all living creatures flies out the window).

But, aside from the snakes in the Serpenteens series being demigod teenagers who are trying to save humanity and are not in the same class, snakes shouldn't really be feared.  In fact, they get an undeserved bad rap.

Most people who fear snakes, fear them because of the fact that they have no legs, and need to maneuver around by slinking and sliding along the ground or other surfaces.  That serpentine motion immediately sets some people off.

But, have you ever taken time to think about the fact that snakes are very beneficial to the environment? Without them, we would be overrun by rodents and insects.  One rodent-eating snake can decimate a family of rats in wee…

Squish-Squash is a hit!
