there’s a tree at lake harriet with a hollowed out base where a friendly elf lives and answers letters using only lower-case letters because “capitals are too big”. his name is thom, and if you leave him a letter, he promises to write you back.
we really wanted kp to get a letter from mr. little guy, so we helped her leave a picture of herself for thom.
on the back, we helped her write a note.
we came back just a couple days later and found that thom had already left an answer for kp.
my favorite part about mr. little guy is that he always ends every letter he writes with the words “i believe in you”. i can’t think of anything else i’d rather hear from an elf.
have you ever left a note for mr. little guy?
1. alta lucia is one of the most beautiful names i’ve ever heard. especially for an elf. but also humans.
2. do not start googling unless you want to uncover mr. little guy’s secrets.
