Taken from my original blog archive- they all chose me at some point, and now choosing them for color (and heart), couldn't be more fun.
It was a good place for getting lost in, a city no one ever knew, a city explored from the neutral heart outward, until after many years, it defined itself into a jumble of clearings separated by stretches of the unknown, through which the narrowest of paths had been cut.
