Preview ~ Overture

The Wave chorus breathe and drift into the Ocean of Quiet sounds, where every sound that has ever been made vibrates, resonates. Then silence. Smoking silence. The waves bring us closer to shore, where all around the village, pale lives flicker and shine in the gentle gloom. We try to listen. But She hears everything.

...but how ephemeral the sounds of the world: how tremulously like a dream they slip among our memories...
