i could have stayed there for weeks, in the shadows of those sleeping dragons. hell, i could spend years wandering the northern rockies. all time is too brief in those newer lands: lands that are older than we, but younger than most. i wanted to wander away among them, but the responsibilities of life tie me down to other places: places that do not inhabit me or surround me in my dreams.
