Over the past year, I’ve become fascinated with stories about childhood encounters with animals. It started with Julian Martin’s description of his grandmother clubbing, skinning, and cooking a groundhog; since then, it seems everywhere I turn I hear great stories about courage, life and death, love and affection, loyalty and hearbreak connected to children and animals.
What’s your story?

I am actually more intrigued with encountering mystical animals in the wonderland of childhood fantasies~ Loved childhood imaginary and creativity 😉
Brilliant! I hope you will consider writing on that!
