Notes, 1997

Dreamy, evocative, suspenseful, striking. No children were ever like this, but that's not the point. It draws you in. But it's tedious at times.

Epigraph
Information from the Finnish Common Knowledge. Edit to localize it to the English one.
Ja minä näin tulevan taivaasta alas enkelin,
jolla oli syvyyden avain ja suuret kahleet kädessään.
Ja hän otti kiinni lohikäärmeen, sen vanhan käärmeen,
joka on perkele ja saatana, ja sitoi hänet tuhanneksi vuodeksi
ja heitti hänet syvyyteen ja sulki ja lukitsi sen sinetillä hänen jälkeensä,
ettei hän enää kansoja villitsisi, siihen asti kuin ne tuhat vuotta ovat loppuun kuluneet;
sen jälkeen hänet pitää päästettämän irti vähäksi aikaa.

- Johanneksen ilmestys 200:1-3
Kauhea on joka enkeli.
