Welcome back! Toydust here.
Where can we find inspiration?
Please consider the following:
A fragile dewdrop clings to a rose petal with persistence.
The curiosity of a baby water buffalo as it snorts a dung beetle.
The triumph of a cloud that has rained for the first time.
The yearning eyes of a platypus who seeks truth.
The majestic beauty of a banana slug giving birth.
Yes, my toy-dusty friends, I speak of nature.
We can find inspiration… from nature.
And I don’t get outside as much as I should. Books, toys, and writing, you know…
One morning I was having thoughts such as these when there was a knock at the door.
I looked through the peephole and saw two guys in dark suits. I figured they were either government agents or Mormon missionaries.
I opened my house to them. Literally.
“I am Agent Tom Jones and this is Agent William Smith,” said the older one, extending his hand.
“Charmed, I’m sure.” I shook his hand. “And what can I do for you today?”
“Look,” said Agent Smith, “we don’t have time for chitchat. You’re in danger, Toydust.”
I took a step back. “Whoa. How do you know me?”
“We read your blog, son,” said Agent Jones. “You know. At toydust.com.”
“Oh,” I said. “So you’re the two who are reading it.”
Agent Smith threw his hands in the air. “Enough already! Toydust, you need to come with us now!”
“You know,” I said, “when I checked my blog stats page I assumed those two visits were from my mom and dad, but I guess I was wrong. Wow. I can’t even get my parents to read my blog.”
Agent Jones turned his head about, giving the area a quick scan. “I’d say we have another minute before they show up. If we’re not on the road by then, it will not be good.”
“But I don’t know you,” I said. “Why should I trust you?”
Agent Smith pulled a Dallas Vintage Toys gift card from his jacket. “While under our protection, we have been authorized to give you a shopping spree at…”
Moments later, we zoomed down the road.
