Sometimes a game comes at just the right moment in your life. 'Flower' is beautiful, serene, and a bit of sunshine in a gloomy world.

I am not a religious person myself, but I did look for nature. I had spent my first sabbatical in New York City. Looked for something different for the second one.

Joyce Carol Oates

There are grander and more sublime landscapes - to me. There are more compelling cultures.
