Posted on Sunday, September 3, 2017 | No Comments

Smart Bears, Angry Rats is another in a series of thought-for-the day books, focused on recovery, but applicable to everyday life. A book within a book, Smart Bears, Angry Rats tells the story of a scientist seventy-five years into the future trying to cure cancer. He hopes to win back his estranged wife, but becomes addicted to Lil' Bit instead. Carelessness leads to chemically enhanced mice escaping, with dire consequences 150 years from now. The reader peers over my shoulder in present day through the eyes of my wife and children while I conjure up the daily messages. Here's a couple excerpts:

As ye sow, so shall others reap (75 years from now)

The hawk carried the infected snake back to his nest to feed the hatchlings. One of the hatchlings would be killed by power lines. Crows would pick at his carcass, acquiring the virus. A second would catch a mouse, bite it, but drop it. The mouse, one unlucky little fellow, would survive just long enough to be eaten by a fox, who would pass the virus onto her offspring. The third didn't survive the virus. The fourth passed the virus onto eleven offspring.

When we sow the seeds of our own destruction, some are likely to scatter to the wind.
