Winter Wish

December 24 - Creators Realm - Jelly 20

It’s the morning of Winter Wish Eve. In a few hours Nori and I will be hosting a Winter Wish party at Zell’s Place. But this morning is a time for remembering as I have done for the three years since arriving in the Creators Realm. For many, Winter Wish is symbolic. Wishes for the […]

Discover Your Magic

August - Creators Realm - Jelly 21

We all have a magic inside us, one that is truly our own. This is our superpower, our change-the-world talent. Many times, we don’t recognize our own magic because we’re too busy trying to imitate the magic of others. Sometimes, we get so wrapped up in someone else’s story that we forget the work it […]

Let Me Entertain You

August - Creators Realm - Jelly 21

It took me a while to discover my true self because I was always comparing myself to my father or my sister. It was my sister who diagnosed my shadow syndrome and helped me to discover my own true light. My father was a great magician and entertainer. I don’t claim to be an illusionist […]

Origins – Little Creatures

Life on Zorko - Tessla Queen - Keeper of the Portal - Creature Emerging from Crater

Negotiations

january - cratersville - 10th grade - Hug Me Bing on Sign

It was mid January. And, according to my calendar it was only a few days away from National Hugging Day.

Negotiations

January - Cratersville - 10th Grade - Hug Me Bing on Sign

Before I begin, I should let you know that I don’t have no truck with magic of any kind—at least not if I can help it. I’m not saying that magic isn’t real. Hanging with Jel, I know better than to say that. But, just because something’s real, doesn’t mean that I want to go […]

Letters to Earth

Spring - Wanderlore Grove - Creators Realm - Jelly 27

As I write these words, its early spring. I’m sitting at a small table in my star wagon. My windows are open, allowing a cool breeze to waft through the room. The drafts flicker the flame of a nearby candle and flutter the pages of my Creation Book as I try to write these words. […]

The Magic

August - Wanderlore Grove - Icon Realm - Jelly 12

At first, when my sister, Poppy, and I discovered the Magic that allowed us to create little creatures, we weren’t really sure what we had gotten ourselves into or, for that matter, what exactly the Magic that we had invited into our lives was. Eventually though, as our number of creations multiplied, we started wondering […]

Holidays of Cratersville

Early January - Creators Realm - Jelly 20

The last Jolly Zings of the season are flittering about my head. They’re dropping their remaining bits of glitter and tinsel upon me as I’m writing these words. Once their magic reservoirs are empty they’ll be gone. The Jolly Zings appear along with the rest of their festive compatriots on the day after Turkey Day—also […]
