The Man Who Did Too Much

By Scott L Vannatter


He showed them Earth, the Moon, the continents, the flowers, the mountains, the countryside, the huge mega-cities, and, most of all, the minds, the souls, the history of the humans.

Supreme Overseer Grotzog lifted a tentacle in praise and admiration as did the entire Council before he spoke to the small creature standing on the central pedestal before them.

“You have shown us such vastness in your imagination and your ability to project your thoughts to all of us at once that we are overly-impressed and recommend your act to the Celestial Circus of Cosmier.”

“But, I am not acting as this is truthfully what transpired with that race over one hundred thousand years ago,” he stated.  But seeing they did not believe, Argamien, the last of the human species, teleported to a nearby habitable planet to live out his days in unknown recognition.

    Hi Scott.

    As I sat, beginning contemplate what to write, a song from the youth began to play in my head, which I feel could have been sung my the individual who had been taken by the aliens to them as he told them the history of HUMANS.


Feel free to say something; I look forward to it!

carly books

I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
