Every one entrusted with a mission is an angel...
- Maimonides, "Guide for the Perplexed"

"There's no earthly way of seeing
Which direction causes being
You can’t see which way you’re going
Or which way the time is flowing
Is it starlight? Is it snowing? Is a sandstorm gently blowing?
Not a speck of light is showing
So the danger must be growing
Is the burning man a glowing?
Is the grisly reaper hoeing ?
Dangerous flowers must be growing
For the pirates keep on rowing
And the Ninjas, they’re not showing
Any signs that they are slowing!"
The other worldly light encircles them, it is not an Other World the Tiny Alien is familiar with. The Oracle looks deep and thoughtful. She intones the directions for the Tiny Alien's journey in a deep voice full of the mysteries of ages and egg creams. The Tiny Alien shakes in fear and confusion. Then, with the full wrath of siblings everywhere, she turns her glare on her brother.
"Alex, where did you get the water from . . . . " the implied threat hangs visibly in the orange light.
Alex flickeres in and out. "I went to this waterfall I know. Do you want some chocolate?"
What will the Tiny Alien do now? Join us next time for Tales of the Tiny Alien.
