The boy and his father joined the throng lined up on both sides of the palisade in cheering as the cavalcade wound its way through the streets. “Yay!” “Hooray!” they all shouted tirelessly, waving their hands and throwing th...

A short piece that unexpectedly hit me while travelling, and that I had to put to paper immediately. Related to the 'Beneath The Sun' and 'The East Wind' storylines, which will be expanded soon.
Believe not overmuch in providence. Journey not to uncover that beyond reach. For everything that needs be found, Cannot be found. Listen not for fallen structures. Seek not erroneous say, Nor the springing ...
