Favorite Quote:
I dream of a world where chickens are free to cross the rode without their motives being questioned. (A friend)


The city was a cake made of layers of time

The oldest at the bottom, who came up to tell their tales

The youngest at the top, digging down to hide from their fears

Past and present were represented together

The city was a calendar

A calendar of generations
