This little cherub sits and sleeps all day in my neighbour’s garden. He is a bit of a local attraction. Many people stop and talk in front of him (usually in soft tones so as not to disturb him) or nod to him as they walk by. I haven’t yet seen anyone just walk by and ignore him.
The other day someone tied a red balloon to the fence and just today I saw a teddy bear left by the mailbox. This little guy has captured local affections. So serene, so cosy amongst his greenery, he sleeps and dreams without fear.
** I have a story in Val Brussell’s wonderful Tuck Magazine. It is an honour to be in the company of such esteemed writers. For some great reads you really should go and visit. Thank you, Val. It is a privilege to be included.
