This is Elise.
An Ode to the Stripe. I wish I could channel Shel Silverstein or Dr. Suess right now and write you a little tale or poem about where stripes lead, or how we wonder about where stripes lead. Or about a little stripe who gets lost in a vast pattern on a vaster striped quilt and how he discovers his role in that world. Ooooorrr about a big ambiguous animal who is covered in stripes and all the other big ambiguous animals make fun of him for being different, but in the end his stripes make him famous... then all the other animals love him...wait...this is starting to sound like a Christmas song... No? Eh, no.
Enjoy the stripes!
