Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?

Hi, Skylar! There's something I've always wanted to ask you, ever since I was a guppy. Is it really nobler to suffer the slings and arrows of life than to teach a horse how to water? Your opinion matters so much to me!

Also, do you like hugs? I'll send you some if you're willing. You're so cute and always a gentle person with a soft answer, even when people send you rude messages. I admire that about you.

Like for instance, someone said no to me one day and I impaled him on a garden rake! Whoops!

I almost forgot to tell you that there's something waiting for you on your welcome mat, right outside your front door. I laid it there in the middle of the night, right next to several items that you had probably thrown into your trash can by mistake. There's no need to thank me; just please remember that I have the best interest at heart.

Would you be willing, one day, to go on a trip with me? Please consider it. I'd pay for everything, naturally. The kayak, the paddles, the drill & the life vest filled with sand.
