The white winter blizzard covers everything. Now we can only rely on the saints, on our prayers. The future has sailed away, with us left behind. Lost, we did not board the magic ship. The task at hand is simple - not to perish in the fog, not to die from the cold, not to get trapped under the ice. Not to fall in our own traps. Or are we all in one big trap anyway? Running around in a small circle, counting those who vanished.
