There are places in this world where the fabric of reality is woven a little looser. There are spaces between the threads, and strange and unusual things can push through these gaps into the light. Things from the otherworld, which lies just below our feet. The thin cloth of reality covers much, and allows us to create laws and rules of science and nature, and to feel more comfortable in our vast and chaotic world. But if you dare, come with me up the mountain and I’ll show you a place where faces which have never walked our earth, are pressing themselves through the rocks.
Can you see them? Up here, where even the air is thinner, we can let our cloak of reason slide to the ground, and open our eyes in a different way. Let go, and let your mind play freely for a while, in the shadows and light of this high place. There are surprises just waiting to be noticed.
Heads of dragons and rock giants, pressing themselves into existence, up here on the top of the mountain, where they think no one will notice.
Dozens of stone soldiers, watched over by the mountain hares, who box here under the moonlight. They scatter in a burst of white tails at the sound of our feet.
But don’t tell anyone. Keep it a secret, because if too many people come, someone might notice that the fabrics loose and it might get reported. Then the threads would be pulled tight, and the spaces would vanish, and with them the rock faces.
