"The membrane, as a container and protective barrier holding within it a precious and separate interior, is a self-similar occurrence across all scales of physical and non-physical reality."

Brilliant and Inspiring!  I was completely transported and so utterly immersed in The Strega and the Dreamer, that by the end, what began as a finely woven tapestry had become a familiar cozy blanket that enveloped me like a big warm hug.

I simply did not want the story to end!
