I felt my world fall down around me, my world just split apart. I guess it’s alright when you’re left with broken hearts, ‘cause you grow with good intentions, you learn more about this life. I watched my empire burn to ashes as you left me there that night. Valencia, Spinning Out
Over at hitRECord we’ve been having some fun with secret santa. Since we’re a community of artists, we made each other art for the Christmas. (I’m Jewish, but I’m always up for secret santa, especially when it involves trading art.) I wrote my secret santa some tiny stories. Here they are :)
The Tiny Tale of a Tiny Forgotten Mouse
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,
the family continued to ignore the stirrings of the sad, lonely mouse.
Right before Santa left the house, he crept into the kitchen, expecting to find a plate of cookies and a tall glass of milk. What he found instead was a group of soldiers adorned in chocolate chips and sugar, brandishing the broken shards of the poor glass of milk and prepared to defend their lives at whatever cost.
The ornaments on the tree all seemed to be just out of reach from one another. One morning, however, the tree toppled. The ornaments smashed to pieces as they hit the ground, but as the family reacted in horror, the ornaments were at peace; they were finally together.
