A Little Bit of Emu

A snippet of something I was creating a few terms ago! Song birds chirping in the bush beside her window stirs Mary from her sleep at around 11:00am. She rarely allows herself to sleep in so late, but she hadn’t realized just how exhausted the week had made her. Ponyo had vacated her spot in […]

HERDING CATS
