There is an idyllic pasture, the generic grass grows verdantly and baby lambs make sure to eat all of the beautiful meadow flowers. The lambs are scratchy and have legs made from household objects.

Three guardian angels swing carelessly to and fro. There are three of them, but Good/Medium/Evil do not exist here and the binary scale slides freely. The guardian angel’s offer guidance and support, they are bodyless heads of wisdom.

Bodies are overrated. A rare anomaly appears and is included. Something about a body as impermanent, that can be re-shaped to some extent.

What does heaven look like to a teddy bear who has been tied to the front of a truck and blasted with road muck?

Empty clothes and stuffie skins.

The creatures that populate the pasture are not alive. The scarecrows are rudimentary figures wearing a body as they would wear their ragged human clothes; performing the role of a gargoyle, they scare everything without selection. Go away: Good, Medium and Evil!
