The young boy ventured into the cold night; the light layer of snow crunching beneath his boots. In one hand he held a flashlight, in the other, a hammer; just in case mercy was required. The boy walked at a brisk pace, determined to get his "mission" over with. His heart pounded as he neared the spot he had left the poor creatures many hours ago, out here in the cold. He was afraid of the sight he might come to, but he pushed ever onward.
At last, the boy arrived at the clearing in the snowy field where the snow had been swept away and in its place was a small covering of leaves that never got raked up last fall. As the boy bent to
Before I actually begin, I would like to give thanks to deviant user Ashwings and her amazing submission entitled Artisticly Speaking? That single piece has inspired me in such a way, I decided to write this draft. I recommend that you see what she has to say; along with her other art works.

Alright, so...I am now done checking all my messages and browsing through the Daily Deviations. For those of you taking the time to read this, I thank you. I'm sure that you are questioning this update. To be honest, I am too.
I'll let you know as to what prompted this update. As I was going through the MANY polls I receive in my inbox, there was one asking about New Years Resolutions. Sadly, I forgot who posted it, but regardless. There was this list of typical resolutions which I just glossed over. I don't know what all the options were.
