Once upon a time, in a land far far away, was a town of tall castles and derelict cabins. In this town lived a peculiar bunch of little fellows. These people lived above a decidedly taller civilization that was unaware of the secret world overhead, only coming out at night. Between the castles of the big world, the small world had spun themselves a wonderful maze of interconnecting passages along magical wires. Never touching the ground, they travelled in single lines, balancing their way through the town and ignoring the world that slept below. I must say, what a lovely view they must share! [Jack Mur]
