Sweden: Visby

“...lightning forked toward the dry earth, the white light streaking across the sky as if bony fingers reached into the purpling cloud. Thunder shuddered through the early night, the vibrations of it rolling through the cracked soil.”
Alannah K. Pearson, Bone Arrow

“Fear still haunted Sunktokeca as he recalled the pair of blue eyes in a face of bleached bone.”
Alannah K. Pearson, Bone Arrow

“Istagunga sought for the magic that ran beneath the soil like a network, each thread connecting all living things together. It was this immense power that held Iktomi's Web together...”
Alannah K. Pearson, Bone Arrow

“A lake is a landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden

“You were once wild here. Don’t let them tame you.”
Isadora Duncan, Isadora Speaks: Uncollected Writings and Speeches of Isadora Duncan

“Pay heed to the tales of old wives. It may well be that they alone keep in memory what it was once needful for the wise to know.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

“What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it is really a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things.”
Shigeru Miyamoto

“Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
