My inner-ring suburb home is the backdrop of a Disney movie this spring. First a nest of thumpers, then Bambi in our backyard. Can we maybe skip the skunks?

Ashana was hot-headed, which is a feat for a mermaid living in the cold depths of the ocean. Her temper was infamous; so intense that the water around her head would boil.

But most people didn't mind and she had many friends.

Anyone who managed to know her would find her anger often justified and directed towards those who hunted whales and those who carelessly spread pollution.

She was someone whose side you wanted to be on.

A #monarch butterfly in flight. I've been seeing one or two each time I go for a walk in the neighborhood, but mostly they're flying around too much for me to get a decent photo. This one decided to stick around this one bush for a while.

The pirates had followed the magyk compass for months, through strange, impossibly exotic locations, discovering the myths they believed and feared to be true, yet overcoming each one together.

Finally, they reached The Spot. They began digging at dawn; and gave up for the day at sunset.

"Maybe friendship be the treasure?" offered the cabin boy.

They all paused, then simultaneously swore.

For indeed, that was the treasure they had found.

I hug the robot. You whisper to me through it. I run my hands trough its hair while I smile at your words.
Then I let go.
It nods and leaves.
In a few hours, it will arrive at your house, disinfect itself, and call me. And I will whisper to you while it caresses you like I would.

I had a typical Royal childhood. I was kept in a tower, watching people from afar. I had affable attendants who spoke often of friends and family. They even spoke of my own family, when permitted.

My tutors were owls who taught me about stars, creatures past and present, and languages by the dozen. It was exhausting and I'd sleep all day.

Once I turned eighteen, the customary Rescue Trials began. Those were exhausting in a different way...
