In which we talk about autumn....
I asked Moriko if the woods behind the house were anything like Aokigahara.
"No. Not that it isn't beautiful here. But in Aokigahara, the trees are so think that by the time you're a kilometer in, you can't hear anything but the forest. No human sounds at all...."
She looked around as a loud THUD shook the ground. "What was that? And do I hear engines?"
Maddy made a wry face. "We have a blacktop and cement factory over there just beyond that rock fence. You can't hear or see it very well in the summer, but in the winter, yeah, you can see the lights and trucks, big-time."
So maybe it is a bit primordial, after all.....
