Wendel, the character in my novel, loves to daydream...and in one sequence he imagines this world up in the clouds, a city called Avenclou (proounced Ay-ven-cl-ow)...In this peaceful realm the people here glide to wherever they need to go. They cannot fly, they can only glide. There are numerous geiser wind stations located all over Avenclou. These are powerful upward erupting wind gusts that propel an Avenclou high into the air so that they may glide to where ever they so choose...This is an illustration of Wendel would look like if he were an Avenclou.
