Before there was a world called Sexton, before I could drive...a great friend of mine and I used to sword fight with shovel handles (an impressively dumb thing to do) in the woods behind his house. We played role playing games a lot. I remember him asking, "If a hole in the world opened in front of you, and you had no idea what was on the other side...would you go through it?"

My answer was yes.

I had nothing to escape, no need to hide, and a perfectly good life in this world. In spite of that, the idea of going somewhere with no idea what would come next, or what was possible... Would I have gone to Sexton?
