I'm always here even if I'm quiet and not saying anything. Someone has to check up on you guys. LOL
Ok, must be time for night shift and it's slow around here. Might as well read a book...Once upon a time in a far away place, there lived a gentle
dragon who was put down for not being fierce. He seemed to make friends with other animals
no matter where he went. Well, after the initial fright of the other animals, before they realized the little dragon was kind.
One day the Father dragon called his son over and told him that he could not have a son that he couldn't be proud of and disowned him right there and
then. The little dragon looked over to his brothers and sisters. They all breathed fire and snarled. The Momma dragon was very sad and just walked
away into the farthest corner of the cave.
Little dragon's heart was broken. What would he do now? Where would he go? He walked out of the cave, spread his colorful wings and took to the air
until he could fly no longer. He landed with exhaustion, curled up under the ancient trees and dreamt...The air was filled with the sound of crickets
and an occasional hoot of an owl here and there, a rustling through the leaves and cracking of twigs as some nocturnal animal crept by.
Little dragon awoke at sunrise and the sound of a human child in distress. He poked his head around the tree and saw a small boy crying. "What is
wrong little human? he asked. The small boy was without fair. He believed in things that others called myths or fantasy. He was very different from
other humans and scolded for believing what the elders considered nonsense. He was laughed at and teased relentlessly by other children so he ran
"I am Thomas." said the child to the little dragon. The dragon smiled widely. "I am Dreamer. said the dragon.
Thomas was very excited to finally meet a dragon. "We can be friends and have great adventures together and never have to worry about what others say
Dreamer was excited to finally have met a human especially a human child, but he knew that a child could not wander the rest of his days with a dragon
by his side. He knew too that he himself would have to return and be with other dragons. But for now, for a time anyway, they could be friends and
perhaps support each other, make each other find their courage and strength to be, not what others expected them to be, but to be themselves in spite
of all else. They would both return to where they belonged, but today. Today was for fun and frolicking and deep thoughts and deep dreams. The soft
summer wind blew through the trees, birds sang their daily songs and all was well with the world.
