Once more and again . . .

Music drifted through the house and it pulled her out of the haze which had been swirling in her head.  She had been filling note cards and organizing delivery boxes in an almost rotary fashion. She stepped into the main room and was almost confused to see him sitting by the fireplace playing mellow tunes on a saxophone. He had his own list and boxes waiting for him, but right now his music was echoing her hazy mood.

She patted his shoulder as she walked past him and headed to the window, saying “November is over”

He stopped playing and laughed with a bit of a huff. “December has just begun,” he replied.

Outside it was snowing. She saw foxes playing in a tree stump and pawing in the fresh snow. They were a contrast to the kittens who played on their post, nice and warm inside the house. She leaned on the window and sighed. A groan slipped out of her mouth. She whined, “There’s so much to do.”

She  loved her work, and she loved her life, but she was feeling strain creeping up on her.

Turning from the window she saw that he had put the instrument away and was sitting, slouched, on a trunk that was serving as his seat. She went over to join him and the pair of them leaned back to each other, hands hanging down at their sides.

“We have a lot to do.” he admitted, a hint of weariness in his voice.

“Yeah,” she returned. “Here’s to another month.”

Holiday Ramblings . . .

The holidays are here.  In the United States we just finished with Thanksgiving and now it’s full speed on to the next big thing: Christmas.

In all this time of running about, gatherings and a myriad of social events, do you ever stop and wonder what it’s all for?  What does it all mean?  What is it that you are thankful for this holiday season? Or are you simply acting thankful because that’s what you’re suppose to be doing.

With Christmas fast approaching, many use material possessions to express emotions. The price tag, being reflective of their feelings towards the other person, causes people to break open their piggy banks and spend money that they don’t have. All this in an effort to prove how much they care.

But, if you ask me, the best gift has no price tag.  It can’t be brought in a store, exchanged, or lost. The greatest gift is love.  It’s time.  If you’re wondering what you can give people this holiday season, why not give them a little love.

On a mission . . .

Out of all the other Druids in her village who sought after the honor of seeking the mysterious Shan’zi relic, Kibou was chosen. Whether it was due to her tenacity or stubborn aggression, when her name was chosen many were left with more than a bit of doubt. She wasn’t known to be the best at anything, but had now been given this impossible quest.

The relic was known to be hidden in the ruins of the old monastery, on an isle across the South Sea. Legend spoke of dangers that confronted any who sought the relic. Only one person had ever returned, but their mind was gone.

Her travels were laid out for her, but even without it Kibou would have known the way. With every day that passed, she felt a pull at her spirit and knew it was the relic calling out to her. This feeling worked as its own directional compass and it grew stronger the closer she got to the destination.

After many days she finally saw the ruins in the distance. The pull was so strong that her body wanted to move on it’s own, but she took a deep breath and closed her eyes.  Maybe this is what happened to all who had come before her?  They fell victim to the pull. Kibou focused her mind and her long elven ears twitched as she listened to the nature all around her.  Allowing herself to open to the environment. The air around began to stir and in her minds eye she traveled the rest of the way to the ruins. Buried deep in the heart of it, next to a bed of orchids, was the Shan’zi. Said to be a gift from the gods, the Shan’zi was able to influence fate.

She saw now apparent dangers, but the air felt placid.  Kibou opened her eyes and knelt down besides a collection of rocks and studied the ruins. She felt hesitant, but the pull was still there, begging and pleading for her to come.

I will bring the Shan’zi to my village, Kibou resolved to herself. She was going to do it. She was going to influence her own fate.

Squirrels

“You can’t be friends with a squirrel! A squirrel is just a rat with a cuter outfit.”
– Sarah Jessica Parker

Don’t let anyone tell you who you can’t be friends with, talk too, or hang out with.  You don’t have to agree with the opinions of others.  Befriend a squirrel, it may be the best choice you’ve ever made.

Always home . . .

They moved around a lot – some may even call them vagabonds. A couple months here, a few months there, they adopted to living out of cardboard boxes, only ever unpacking the essentials. Another city, another house, new neighbors, and new jobs.

Moving around wasn’t always easy, so they learned to never put down solid roots.  However, no matter how many times they moved – whether their next home was big or small – if they had each other they had everything that they needed.

Dance of Summer’s End

Her dance caused the winds to roll across the fields. She twirled, and leaves took on a darker color before dropping from tress; circling in a soft whirlwind. The graceful sway of her arms pulled the bright colors from the earth. The wind carries the whispered words of her song.

Her job was simple: to send the last, lingering vestiges of Summer home.

Maybe, if luck grants the chance, you will catch a glimpse of her dance for she is all around. Her touch is the warmth after a cold day. Her scent is in the flowers which open to absorb the last of Summers rays. Her kiss takes an hour from the day.

When she comes around, all creatures know that the things of Summer must find their way home.
