An excerpt from the story
"Oh, do you know, this place called Away, this place we throw things when they’ve no home to stay? Do you know where it is, this place so far, beyond the light’s reach and the furthest star?
Away, they call it, but no one’s ever been; its mountains, its colours, I’ve so far not seen. Who does live there and what do they know? Do they collect all the things that people throw? Are the mountains made of toys and trash, or are all things recycled and not piled in a stash?
Oh, when can we go to this place called Away, I’ve lent it many things but not learned where they stay? Are the beaches made of plastics and steel, or is the waste cleared away so that nature’s still real?
Tell me, then, why we throw things away? I’m not so sure of the place these things stay. I think it’s a dream, I don’t think it’s real; I know it’s a lie that I won’t conceal.
Oh, join me, then, we’re going Away. Over the hills and deep into days. Through dark forests and trees that sway. Beyond the beauty, and into the grey..."
