  • Remember when the world disappeared at the edge of town? We chased UFO's through the dust of racing on gravel and drank with the ghosts, roasting marshmallows in a bonfire at the center of the burnt down school house. I'm surprised we ever managed to make it out of the mud long before cell service and ever made it back to this world at all.

    These edges, they're endangered. And I'm worried that we're going to lose them forever ... and find ourselves trapped in a world we'll wake up in one day wanting to escape.
