Synopsis
North is everywhere solitary.
Here is all North.
This is a record of the people I met in these Norths.
However, my memory is fragmented and does not get the point at all.
Now I'm starting to wonder my efforts came to nothing.
I'm just getting the occasional recognition of the existence of the world through the dull perception changes shape little by little.
