Artist's Description

Art by Duy Truong………. We were ushered to the palace garden that rested alongside the shimmering blue waters of Lake Kira. It was a cool, clear morn with a slight breeze that drifted ever so gently across the waters. A distant range of snow-capped mountaintops undulated and swelled like a line of long lost fairytale sandcastles.
Princess Catherine ( the queen of the bees) gave us a warm welcome. No longer did she look at all like a bee. Her hair was now a golden honey that glistened spectacularly in the sunlight. She explained that she had important business with the bees to attend to after our meeting. “They are my little darlings. Not a day goes by without a crisis!” She laughed; then sat with us at copper-topped tables with emerald parasols that shaded us from the afternoon Sun.
If you remember, Dear Dairy, Catherine had turned Alfred the Great into a mouse in hopes of ruling the kingdom. The spell had been broken; however Alfred transformed into a mouse whenever he accompanied us on our time travels. She inquired of her father, Alfred, “I must work on getting you to become human once again on your time travels. It is an aftereffect of that wicked spell I cast upon you.”
“No, no, my dear,” he said while Kakuna elves served us gobble berry pastries and pink lemonade. “I am quite happy being a mouse.”
“I do not understand,” said Catherine.
Alfred explained, “It is much like your new role as the queen of the bees. It gives me a new perspective. I find it to be humbling and quite enlightening to see life as mouse would view it. I have seen kings become drunk with power; then turn cruel and inhuman. I imagine history would have taken a much happier course had more kings been turned into mice. Your spell was a blessing, my dear. I would not have it any other way. Please, give it no further thought.”
“Very well, father. I understand.”
They embraced one another while Lucinda strolled onto the terrace. “Good morning, everyone! I did hope to give you a longer rest; however the space-time continuum has gone much farther astray than I would have imagined. I did have a day to study it and I can tell you that your recent 1860 trip to the Pony Express did wonders.”
She brought out her crystal ball….
