Prelude to a Future Post

His second night in Talkingham, Hazel Motes walked along down town close to the store fronts but not looking in them.  The black sky was underpinned with long silver streaks that looked like scaffolding and depth on depth behind it were thousands of stars that all seemed to be moving very slowly as if they were about some vast construction work that involved the whole order of the universe and would take all of time to complete.  No one was paying attention to the sky.
