I lived a long, long time ago in a country whose very name has disappeared from the annals of history.
If you keep looking, learning and continue to be freshly amazed, and don't take it all too seriously you will have found the Secret of Life.
And if you search further still, you may find yourself in the dusty caverns of timeless travels. Find me through the eyes of a bronze skull and join me for the rapture!
