Before the footstep there was the endless steppe, blank and open. We were left on our own, standing in groups, standing alone.
Then someone who was bigger than we were came and took a step. Their steps made an arc across our world.
With the footstep came the footprint. While the step was a temporary motion, the print lasted. It lasted in our yards and in our heads. The print gave us a point to rally, a place to harbor, and ultimately, a spot to step away from.
