When I was ten, my sister and I discovered an incredible Magic. The Magic came with no instructions on how it was to be used. The only caveat was that if we accepted its contract we couldn’t stop creating—ever.
Now, most would have balked at the lack of loopholes, but this didn’t dissuade my sister or me. At once, our minds were flooded with all of the magnificent things we could do.
That’s what happens when you’re ten and eight point five respectively.
Over time, our grand imaginings became more focused. We still could create anything we wanted, but experience taught us that the things we created—especially the little creatures—had a nasty habit of breaking the clockwork of the techno-magical world in which we lived.
That’s what happens when the habitat you call home is controlled by scripts that you have no power to change.
It dawned on us that the power we were given wasn’t for us per se. The ability to create little creatures was about freeing our realm from an old decorum that had become too oppressive.
I want you to share in our adventures. I want you to read about how the little creatures went from being mysterious outcasts to the ubiquitous entities that our hometown of Cratersville just couldn’t ignore.
Most of all, I want you to see a bit of yourself in the little creatures. Perhaps they remind you of yourself when you were young, when your dreams were bigger than life and hope seemed like a summer’s day that would never end.
I want you to experience those things again. I want you to experience that hope and joy, not because I believe in unicorns but because I believe in YOU, and all of the wondrous things you can do if you just get in touch with that part of yourself that society convinced you wasn’t important.
You are important—all of you—especially the childlike part—that child is the key to not only fixing your life, but society as well.
My little creatures are cheering on that child you hold inside, hoping they’re brave enough to take a chance on life again.
My little creatures believe in childhood wonder.
My little creatures are waiting for you to join them in changing the world—one little creature at a time.
