I used to know her story once, but it has changed since, and keeps changing. Cania is not even her name; it is a name for the icy land where her story ends. That is all I know for certain.

I was thinking about a friend's story-in-the-works today. What I've read of it so far from it has created some pretty intense synaesthesia: the taste of wet ground and leaves in the air, somewhat musty, fragrant with things alive and dead. It reminded me of this scene, so I went back to it for those few final touches. Reference: from this photo, © Petra Oldeman: http://1x.com/photo/3471 Sat, 08 Sep 2012 12:32:35 -0400
