Tiny, but powerful

My mice have become very powerful in my life. I wake up to them, hear their squeaks as I go to bed, and have come to love the musky smell of their nests. You can easily spend hours watching their antics, and if you befriend a mouse, they are your friend for life. A very brief life, mind you, since they only live on average two years. But they are precious years that will change your life forever...

Well written. Perhaps mouse or rat is your totem. there's definately a lot of wisdom from mice/rats. they pack so much living into such a short time, and tend to easily adapt to wherever they wind up. SOmetimes, I think when mice/rats get the chance to reincarnate, they choose to come back as mice/rats!
