I noticed a strange stone gnome living near the bridge- he told me there is true magic there for the pure of heart and loving souls. Has anyone else been befriended by this wise ancient creature? He touched my forehead and my pineal gland instantly de-calcified. Suddenly, the hidden world was revealed
