Storyboard Text

  • He wouldstand upon the corner of an intersection and peer down long moonlit avenues of sidewalk in four directions, deciding which way to go, but it really made no difference; he was alone in this world of A.D. 2053, or as good as alone, and with a finaldecision made, a path selected, he would stride off,sending patterns of frosty air before him like thesmoke of a cigar.
