It’s good to be home. I’m not really sure when I started thinking of this towering rock as home, or for that matter, when I started thinking of anyplace in this Hollow World as home, but here it is. Two months of the Surface have reminded me of the pitiful savagery of mankind. Our need for “conquest” and destruction, and to suppress that which we don’t understand or wish to control. At least down in here the savagery is due to the laws of nature, and not the lines on a piece of paper.
