I always take the room with a view.

Even paying more or waiting longer to get that vista, it’s worth it.

In the fiery crags before the fountain, lay the volumes of reed scrolls. The truths of time were said to be stored upon them.

We are amused, slightly, at the maverick meandering concealed here.

The rhythm was fast and the tune intoxicating.

Tempted to dance but adhering to the unwritten code.
