"Like any wave, we are here and then we are gone. And maybe the best we can do while we are here is sit by the fire and stare in wonder. I am so glad that I finally made it to your town. I have wanted to come for so long. Now that I have been, I will come back and when I do, if the waves wash me away, so be it. One day I will be washed away by the wave of time anyway. And time spent here amongst the waves is time well spent."
