Sedwick

To have been there and discovered what time can do 
to a place is astounding.
All the memories flash by before I wake.

Missing true colors, images in only pastel shades which 
have borders and dimensions of depth and spatial distance. 

This place I cannot find on a map, or from any encyclopedia. Thought I might find it while browsing through some
paleontology or mythology books. Did find a few notations
which I call  ‘could be’s.’
But facts don’t line up to justify.
Perhaps it may be during the prehistoric era, maybe just a touch
of an idea that leads to the stone age?

Spent a few days flipping through books at the Clifford society
library  in Kalarchee Illinois. They had a lot of material to shift
through, would take me  weeks to do such. Their reading room 
was like  a grand hotel sitting area. Once you sit, you don’t want to get up!  

About a dozen books later my thoughts of finding drew less and less. I did check out National Geographic site of all their sources.
but came up empty handed once again. 
Did find some places in their magazines that I did not know existed.  But Sedwick was not found. 

Ah! Ha!  Maybe the Holy Grail might know! Just thought I would toss that in to make light of the fact. 
Fact or no fact.
But in fact to the matter, I don’t have any facts to build upon. 
Are you with me?
It’s like constructing a building using Lego’s without the cornerstones. Thus... ‘the walls came tumbling down.”
Jericho in Palestinian territories is not a location for Sedwick

Case at hand:
A place to find
Unlike any other kind
May not exist
Will keep on my list. 

Alternatives... drop it come back later
Conclusion... finding Nemo was easier
Will search for Monarch in Utopia.
