Historical Context:
"When the dark unfolds its wings, do you sense the strangest things? Things no one would ever guess, things mere words cannot express? Abandoned houses, left behind and starting to fall apart from decay are filled with many treasures that cannot be seen from the outside...Many people try so hard to gather material possessions, but why? [Order] turns to chaos as nature takes back all that was once natural. In a hundred years where will our houses be, our treasures? Will they hide the beauty underneath, holding our own personal artifacts gathered over the years left to be found by explorers guessing our life stories, fascinated by the ruin?" -Jamie Yeager
