It started as a gamble (to equal Escher) and ended with a metaphor — a town is a soul and filled with a life of its own.  A child makes everything lively and what started as a gamble ended in an attempt to recapture wonder and innocence.

“The dragon of the cathedral was first,
with it’s vault of teeth unzipping from

the clerestory arching, arching off to the Empyreum.
The lower jaw of windows rolling up like a scroll…”
