Dreamscape

When the night stretches on forever, just like this, and the ice spreads to the edges of the world, like it does now, I feel... very odd. What is this world? Does it have an edge? What’s beyond it? Of course I know that it’s just the night sky and just a frozen lake, but … Continue reading Dreamscape

Reconsidered

It’s all a matter of perspective, isn’t it? If you’d asked me a week ago what I wanted most in the world, I’d have said something like a good scale cleanser, or maybe a tooth buffing. But after days lost at sea, looking for any trace of land on which to rest, these tiny spires … Continue reading Reconsidered

While they don’t feel the cold as others might, it can still sap their strength and slow their bodies, which is why many pups wear adorable knitted garments when playing outdoors for their first few winters. If a pup gets sick, just … Continue reading Winter Blues

What Goes Up

I’ve never tried gliding before... but I guess now I might have to... I wanted to see what it was like this high up, but did not think about coming down again. There are some bushes down there, at least, and the grass is long. Even if I plummet like a stone, I should be … Continue reading What Goes Up
