Years and years ago there were once four children who built a wall. They lived around the circular wall.

A web of new customs and stories fanned out from the spot.

Wonderful, forward-pointing signs that crawled from their undeveloped site into the city and over the borders of the country and even the continent.

Hundreds of thousands of people were infected by them as if by a silent fire. Until four children arrived. They wanted to help. They wanted to take the places of the children who by now had become older.

So that this place and this wall could be perpetuated. But the older ones didn’t want to leave.

That is until the new children began to tell stories in which the old children were no more than extras.
