I am currently "flirting" with the idea of becoming vegan. In Alicia Silverstone's book The Kind Diet, she says it's best to "flirt" with the idea first. In doing this, I am getting myself prepared for the mindset of being vegan. I'm coming closer to aligning myself wholly to becoming vegan. I find it a bit overwhelming right now because I'm constantly looking at labels on everything from food, to cosmetics, to hair products, to shoes because to me slowly becoming vegan means adopting the whole lifestyle. I do like fish, along with bread, which has dairy in it. At this point I'm slowly entering this lifestyle. I have one other friend who is a vegetarian and I want others to know that I'm not judgemental of those who are meat eaters. Being vegetarian and vegan to me means adopting compassion and acceptance for every living thing. I would love any suggestions on how to make this transition.

I want midnight
Garden parties
Me in sequence, spaghetti
Straps, and heels
Under the glow of the
Moon, glint of
Shimmering maroon liquid
Flicker of candles
Laughter ringing out.
