From Sept 9.09

From Sept 9.09

What they had done, what they had seen, heard, felt, feared-- the places, the sounds, the colors, the cold, the darkness, the emptiness, the bleakness, the beauty. Till they died this stream of memory would set them apart, if imperceptibly to anyone but themselves, from everyone else. For they had crossed the continent and come back..."
