Cross-roads of civilization
Refuge of all the arts against the ravages of time
Armory of fearless truth and unrelenting beauty against the craven forces of ignorance and pettiness and ugliness of the soul.
From this place words become real
not insubstantial digital ephemera but solid crafted artifacts
not drowned in the constant torrent of status updates and tweets, but fixed in time.
In this place you are a community made manifest–a community of friends, thinkers, lovers, citizens and appreciators of beauty.
Friend, you stand on sacred ground.
