Smoke gets in your eyes.



Frank lit his final cigarette. He had to stop, it was killing him. He inhaled deeply, exhaled slowly and felt the relaxation that very few things in life could offer. Gazing at the lit end and flicking off the ash, the smoke rose and he could see just how badly it would be missed.

Prayer.

   
                                           Now I lay me down to sleep,
                                           I pray the Lord my soul to keep,
                                           (But what I really wish instead,
                                           Is a Body, Legs, Shoulders and Head).

From: Praying Hands, Albrecht Durer 1508.

Sol


For generations they had searched the system, hoping to find a home to seed with humanoids. Time was running out for them and soon would be forced to eject the seed into space to save themselves.
    This lonely planet the third from a small yellow star only brought dismay. They needed a miracle. Then a small figure stepped forwards from out of the gloom and gave the observatory window a really good wipe...

Lady in Red.

For many years the Lady had waited. Waited for her husband to return from the sea, waited by the window looking down the path that led from the street to her front door. On occasion a sailor would stop and stay awhile, but never her husband and never any news. The Lady spoke softly to herself. "Tomorrow I cannot wait at the window for I must be away to the town and speak to the man from the gas company to ask why the mantles are glowing bright red again".

Scrooge.

Scrooge was dismayed that the spirits had appeared for a second year. Fortunately they had the wrong address. So with glad farewells and a merry Christmas all round they were pointed in the direction of Bob Cratchit`s house by Scrooge, who hoped that  the spirits would teach the uppity bastard his proper place in society.
