On Christmas Eve, they decided that their relationship, as beautiful as an angel’s love story, should end with the dying year. He would have liked to have spent all of their days together, but she decided it was better to leave.

“The New Year should find us in our new lives, where we will miss each other” she said.

Tthere is a land near the top of the world where there is no horizon, no blue to colour the skies, no ground just hills and valleys of silver-white snow. But to this day, during the first week of the arctic spring, before the mountain ice begins its journey to the sea, a small group of seasoned fishermen paddle out in their sealskin umiaks to harpoon a ribbon seal to offer at the mouth of an ancient glacier to Sedna, Spirit of the Sea.

Oone day last summer, a grandfather was sitting on a pier with his grandson fishing. It was a warm sunny day and several people were out and about, enjoying the fine weather. On a seat, near the grandson, an elderly woman was reading a book. When she had finished reading, the woman gathered her possessions and wandered away, leaving the book on the ground by the seat. The grandson, bored with not being able to catch a fish, strolled across, sat on the seat and picked up the book. He quickly flicked through the pages, decided that it was of no interest to him and proceeded to tear out the pages, one by one. When he had sufficient, he screwed them into balls and went to the water’s edge.

As the day was ending, Twilight, mother of Night, was busily spreading Peace and Tranquility about the skies. Suddenly, low on the horizon, she caught sight of the green comet about to leave the galaxy. Fearing for its safety she called out to Darkness, father of Night, for help.

Oonce upon a time there was a blue island in the middle of an ocean. It was the island where a blue god, wearing blue birds on his shoulders, came from time to time. There the sea sent its foamy waves to kiss the ankles of this great, good god.

One day, the blue god met a woman, a creature of Earth and tethered to the earth, since she was unable to fly. The god gave her his hand and she sat down next to him, on the blue rock by the edge of the sea. They did not talk to each other; they only swung their legs in the waves, looking at each other, in silence.

Share the Bear’s real name was Sharon, but nobody ever called her that.

When her friends weren’t mad at her, they called her Share, or Share the Bear if they were being formal, and when they were mad at her, they called her the Caughtcha Bear. This strange name came about because Share was a very playful young bear, and her favorite game was to sneak quietly up behind her little friends, pounce on them and shriek, “Caughtcha!”

Iit was Christmas night and all the toys were happy, in the hands of the children who had been given them as presents. The soldier was now guarding the room, the bunny was enjoying the heat of the fire, and the doll was sleeping, wrapped in silk sheets.

Only the teddy bear had been left under the tree, alone, except for a tuneless guitar. The lights of the Christmas tree had been switched off a long time ago and even the brightness of the outside snow was too weak for the tears of the unwanted teddy bear to be seen in the dark room.

Tthe corridors were teaming with students, as 17 years old Katie lane swept out of her English class. With her best mate Suzy on one arm and her boyfriend Milo on the other, she strode out of the building, planted a quick kiss onto Milo’s lips and, with a ” See ya Suzy “, she climbed into her Mercedes.

She sped off up the hill, towards the new area of town in which her 3-storey house was situated. Behind her she left the usual crowd of admirers muttering, ” Isn’t she gorgeous!” and ” I’m getting my hair done tonight, just like Katie’s! It’s going to look great!”

Oonce upon a time, there was a butterfly who was so sad and lonely that he did not want to live anymore. As he stood, very depressed, on the sea-shore, thinking about the uselessness of his life, he heard a soft, clear voice beside him.

“Good morning. Who are you?” The voice asked.
“I’m a butterfly, but who are you? A speaking stone? I don’t believe it!”
The voice replied. “I’m not a stone. I’m a shell, an oyster! I’m a living being just like you are.”
