Leaf Stone Beetle
by URSULA DUBOSARSKY & GAYE CHAPMAN
This story was inspired by a single leaf left hanging on a twig in late autumn, and from this inspiration there evolved a subtle meditation on transience, disruption and community.
A leaf falls from a tree.
A stone is washed from a stream.
A beetle loses her way.
The Sorry Tale of Fox & Bear
by MARGRETE LAMOND & HEATHER VALLANCE
Friendship is like a winding path, and you never know where the path will lead you.
The narrative focuses on the events that lead to the crumbling of a friendship, which is steadily undermined by power games and practical jokes. Written in the form of a letter from Bear to Fox, the text is Bear’s chronicle of steadily worsening tricks, in which he reminds Fox of their former bond and of the destructive actions that severed it.
How Bear deals with the situation is beyond everyone's expectations, including his own.
