For Sean.

... we are Shriekback and we strive to do good deeds, to be brave, to make firm resolutions and abide by them, to behave honourably and decently, and to run as fast as possible. And to those who love us, too clever by half and too weird for our own good and perhaps for the good of others, we say
"Do not be afraid, approach us as though you were a tiny child, we will take care of you and we will show you marvels, strange colours, unprecedented noises, splendours you perhaps recall from dreams, and, if we stand together long enough, and in the right place, perhaps the accustomed fog will lift and we will glimpse whole new planets, and further off, the unfamiliar stars."

It is beautiful, in its own twisted way.

I had forgotten how cheerfully odd Shriekback were.
