    This is so fundamentally true!

    We are all products of the environment we were born into, the way we are is figured by how our parents have raised us. Life has many pages, but don't get stuck on the last line of one page before turning over to a new one!

    A hush fell on the land

    and all of the creatures in it watched in trepidation. The dark shadow crept in from the cold north encompassing all it touched. They all began to run in panic from the gloom that overtakes, the fear that weakens even the strongest beast, seeking shelter for what they think is...
