I started writing this near-future SF story about the privilege of wealth and education fraud sometime before 2002, and it was first published in 2015 in a charity anthology to benefit an animal shelter. When I wrote it, I wanted to give it a more human -- and animal -- touch, so it also features a miniature guide horse named Molly. Which really is a thing.

This was the first of three stories I wrote based on paintings by the late artist James Christensen, the other two being "On Not Noticing a Bear" and "Ménagerie in Motion" (also available here at Curious Fictions). Christensen's whimsical style captures my imagination (Google him!), and I couldn't help but imagine some stories to go along with his art.
