Every tale must have a beginning, a birth, a point of departure. Some tales begin long, long ago, while others in a land far away. Some begin with both, and for some, that is where they end as well.
It is said that stories give life to people long dead and forgotten. That the mysterious path to immortality is a life worthy of remembrance.
