"Memorize places. Settle your eyes on a place and learn it. See it under the snow, and when first grass is growing, and as rain falls upon it. Feel it and smell it, walk on it, touch the stones, and it will be with you forever. When you are far away, you can call it back. When you need it, it is there in your mind." — Tony Hillerman
