This story was performed at MONA as part of the Angel Story event in July 2012, and subsequently published on Islandia, the Island Magazine blog. Because it’s not the kind of blog where you can link to individual entries, I thought I’d repost the story here for future reference.
I could have offered it up as a Christmas present to my blog readers, but the thought of giving an angel story AT CHRISTMAS was too much twee for me to cope with, plus it’s not that kind of angel story. Also I didn’t want to inflict melancholy on people during the festive season. The 2nd of January, though, is the perfect date for melancholy!
