Roy Janik
The boy with the golden eyes didn't sleep. He was happy, and so long as he was happy, he didn't want to miss a moment of life. There was dancing, skipping, exploring, breathing, living to do. Sleep wasn't an option. It was so boring. What were dreams of slumber compared to daydreams, anyhow?

Sleep would come later, he knew, when the world grew dark and uninteresting. When one wanted to escape. He knew that the day would come, but that it was a long ways off yet. But just as he knew that his heart was filled with joy, he knew that there were those whose lives were composed of nothing but limitless suffering. He knew this as a fact, as he knew what order the seasons came in. And just as the boy with golden eyes knew the names of the seasons, he also knew the names of those in torment. The Firebrand. The Dewfly. But he was not sad. There was dancing, jumping, living to get on with, and the boy with the golden eyes knew that one tear would ruin it all.

Re: not just words

Thank you very much. I'm trying to get over my inherent shyness at letting other people read my stuff. It' been a lonnng time since I've written anything of substance, so any words of encouragement are very welcome indeed.

Re: not just words

No problem. This is actually a small part of a larger hypertext story I'm working on. It's rough, developing form is available at my website http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/zinereem

Ultimately, it will be publishing at www.23goe.com, whenever that site has its grand re-birth.
