    Jacoba's Glasses

    Stranded in a deserted city, Sufi has had enough. The world looks hopeless until Veteris shares the story of Jacoba and her magic glasses. With a little self-reflection, the story lets us know we also have our own glasses and magic, if we choose to use them. Able to tie to optics, perspective, and deduction, this short story also ties to self-reflection and to choosing to be happy. There are secondary (more hidden) connections to activities in robotics and animal science through Fidel, Veteris' trusty friend.
