About darling things - I've written before about the obsession with "things" and "style" and "self" that permeates all corners of the internet. I think it's ok, good even, to appreciate beauty - both natural and mandmade. I think it's ok to show the world something you created and to enjoy the feedback. BUT, it can quickly become an addiction....this thirst for approval or the quest for the next most beautiful thing. I've been listening to some sermons about that lately and it's been good for me to spend time assessing how much of this I do in my own life.
