MONSTER LIFE

Back in the day when My Singing Monsters (one of our games here at Big Blue Bubble) was just an idea, I was asked to write a short story for it. What I wrote didn’t really fit where the game was going, but I rode the inspiration wave just the same.  One of the artists on the project Chris Elliott sent me a few of his monster drawings to help get my creative juices flowing and this is what came out…

THIS IS A RE-POST FROM MY OTHER BLOG SITE THAT NO LONGER EXISTS, SO SOME OF YOU MIGHT HAVE READ THIS ALREADY.

A simple poem inspired by the works of the fine artists here at Big Blue Bubble.

Monster life

In times of great despair, when the situation looks most bleak, the creatures of good will rise to see us through the evil. When darkness was all that we knew, and fear was all around us, the creatures of light came to beat back the darkness and chase away our fear. When the land dried and cracked along with our hopes, the creatures of rain showered us with new life and new possibilities, and when the silence, so deafening, muted our inspiration, the creatures of music filled our lives with song and fuelled our imaginations.

Life is a song, so dance.
