Peter the squirrel realized he had made some poor decisions of late. Storming when he should have retreated, taking when he should have given, speaking when silence would have been preferable.
Peter realized that he was adrift.
Pacing his tiny, one room house, 'What should I do?' he thought. He then remembered his special piece of paper. Peter stopped his pacing and walked over to a small table. In the center of the table was a tiny box made from the two halves of a walnut. Peter removed the top half of the box. Inside was a small, folded-once note. Peter took out the note and unfolded it. Scrawled on the paper, in a hand probably not his own were the words, 'Just be kind'.
Peter could not remember why this would help, but he had learned instinctively to trust this small scrap of paper.
