Why I love Edward Monkton

  • One of my most special friends introduced me to him when he gave me one of his books as a going-away present.  (Don't know why the book made him think of me:)
  • His goal is to make everyone in the world happy (see the video of "The Pig of Happiness")

  • He is the original writer of our public day of randomness badges.
Indulge yourself in his lovely and enigmatic picutres and sayings...










And now to end off...with a Lovely Love Story:

The fierce Dinosaur was trapped inside his cage of ice.

Although it was cold he was happy in there. It was, after all, his cage.

Then along came the Lovely Other Dinosaur.

The Lovely Other Dinosaur melted the Dinosaur’s cage with kind words and loving thoughts.

I like this Dinosaur, thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur.

Although he is fierce he is also tender and he is funny.

He is also quite clever although I will not tell him this for now.

I like this Lovely Other Dinosaur, thought the Dinosaur.

She is beautiful and she is different and she smells so nice.

She is also a free spirit which is a quality I much admire in a Dinosaur.

But he can be so distant and so peculiar at times, thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur.

He is also overly fond of things. Are all Dinosaurs so overly fond of things?

But her mind skips from here to there so quickly, thought the Dinosaur.

She is also uncommonly keen on shopping. Are all Lovely Other Dinosaurs so uncommonly keen on shopping?

I will forgive his peculiarity and his concern for things, thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur.

For they are part of what make him a richly charactered individual.

I will forgive her skipping mind and her fondness for shopping, thought the Dinosaur.

For she fills our life with beautiful thought and wonderful surprises.

Besides, I am not unkeen on shopping either.

Now the Dinosaur and Lovely Other Dinosaur are old, look at them;

together they stand on the hill telling each other stories and feeling the warmth of the sun on their backs.

And that, my friends, is how it is with love.

Let us all be Dinosaurs and Lovely Other Dinosaurs together. For the sun is warm. And the world is a beautiful place


  1. Wow! That's a lot of Edward Monkton. But brilliant... especially the hair that wants to be a dragon.

    Reminds me of someone I know - he's convinced he looks like George Clooney. Alas...

  2. I like my George Clooneys with a pale skin, sligthly lighter hair, two different kind of eyes and uncontrollable curly hair. Those kind are the best....

  3. My favourite one is: "The friends can connect in mysterious ways without even speaking. Perhaps they have amazing special powers. Perhaps they are both just peculiar in the head." I think the Dinosaur is also known as the Oracle. I think the Dinosaur and the Other Dinosaur are a match made in heaven.

  4. Thanks Nadolkie. I also think Jaco and I are perfect dinosaurs for each other. You and I are definately friends connected in mysterious ways and also definately slightly peculiar in the head...
