again and again..

I fell in love with my dreads all over again about two days ago. I was mad at them for a good few days. I hated looking at them in the mirror, I hated the way they laid on my head, I hated the way they were forming and being all flat in some places. And then I took a shower, washed them up, let them air dry in the gorgeous weather we had the other day as I was out protesting a protest (March for Life assholes were at the capitol), and by the time I was up at a friend's house in Seattle Wednesday night I realized how gorgeous they were and how nice they were forming. Yay for dreadlocks. I haven't brushed my hair in about 4 and a half months and my first real lock had it's four month birthday two days ago. They are looking great and I wish I could show you guys, but I have no camera. Maybe soon...

A snowball melts on the side of a limousine as Vice President Richard Cheney waves during the inaugural parade in Washington, January 20, 2005. Flag-draped coffins and anti-war chants competed with pomp and circumstance on Thursday at the inauguration of President George W. Bush along the snow-dusted, barricaded streets of central Washington.

whenever i want to cut out my dreads, i come here and all of your pretty one make me hold on a while longer....
the problem is that they're not so hot. nothing i do will make my roots dread. and my hair is thin so the peope putting them in only made twelve out of my whole head (now there's fourteen, i had to pull some apart)i'd like to have more and i'd love for them to be long, but i know if i cut them out, i will have to wait eons for my hair to be long enough to dread again and they'r fairly tight for five months (and one day) so i don't know if i could brush them out. what the general consensus on cutting one into two? or cutting one down shorter? and can anyone offer help to my rebellious roots?
oh please gurus of the dread, share your wisdom with me.....
