Once you’ve seen these stories—full of dragons and bears; creatures gigantic and minuscule; voyages both out into the universe and inward to the truest self—feel free to withdraw into your cave and read them in deep, dark seclusion. But don’t hoard them like a dragon, keeping the stories hidden forever in your cave.
After poring over this treasure trove of words, savoring them, and delighting in them, don’t keep them only for yourself—share the treasure! Share our stories far and wide. As always, if you want to support Zooscape more directly, we have a Patreon.
