City of Illusions

He liked the vast openness of sky and prairie, and found loneliness a pleasure with so immense a domain to be alone in.

Quoted on October 11, 2013

We of Es Toch tell a little myth, which says that in the beginning the Creator told a great lie. For there was nothing at all, but the Creator spoke, saying, It exists. And behold, in order that the lie of God might be God’s truth, the universe at once began to exist.
