In Other Words

Have you ever read The Wheel Of Time, by Robert Jordan? It’s one of my favorite epic fantasy stories ever.

In the series, some characters have the power of sleepwalking, or dreamwalking. (I have written some scenes for an upcoming fantasy story where some of the characters have this power too. What can I say? I’m a fan of strange dreams. And this story was born from a dream too, so it makes sense.)

Anyway, the point is that imagine this case scenario:

Without meaning to, you break some of the Terms of this license. But you don’t realize it until you start dreaming.

In your dream, you find a kitten with little wings first. It brings you a little piece of paper in one of its paws with the message: “Please respect my work.” The kitten is so cute that you don’t want to hurt its little heart.

🐾🐱

So you tell yourself to rewind course and stop using the images incorrectly.

But then you forget, in the way that we forget dreams when we wake up.

And you see the kitten again.

And you rewind the course again.

And then you forget again.

One night, you go to sleep again. You see a little paw entering your kitchen and you remember the kitten. So you smile to yourself and say: “Here, kitty, kitty.”

But then you realize that the kitten is not alone. This time, it brings an army of cute angel kittens with a message in each paw. Because they don’t want you to forget anymore.

🐾🐱🐾🐱🐾🐱🐾🐱🐾🐱🐾🐱🐾🐱

And you don’t want to hurt the hearts of so many angel kittens.

So this time you remember.

🐾🐱 And every time you think about the kittens, they remind you of how important it is to respect the work of all the creative hearts in this world. 🐾🐱
