“Up here, far away from everybody, the night is peaceful: there’s no sound except the hum of the Earth.... the Earth’s deep, never-ending note clothes me in rainbow colors, fills my head with all the books ever written, and feeds me with the smell of Mrs. Sergeant Jones’s famous vanilla biscuits and the strawberry taste of Instant Whip and the cool slipperiness of glowing red jelly”
― Mari Strachan, The Earth Hums in B Flat
