“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” The Dilettante Diaries: Avian Notes on the Sensate Slip Stream : The Silent War in 3 Acts (Part 2) What beats in their hearts, what have they seen? Avians murmurating stories on the Sensate Slip Stream Invisible golden chords?
