Sano, or sartor resartus

Editor Waggener:

Having carefully perused the "recent" news from Sano; your addendum thereto asking -- nay, piteously pleading -- for the metes and bounds of that fair village; and Sir Erwin Lepiarczyk's learned postulate concerning same, I will offer the following:
I would posit that Sano, like Ono and Esto (and, according to certain rumor-mongers, Montpelier), is a more a state of mind than a purely physical reality constrained by the laws of this earthly plane; that its location lies in the heart and gaze and wishes of the beholder, with borders as real but no more fixed than the merrily dancing will o' wisp; and that, as is the wont such things ethereal, it encompasses a considerably larger area from within than from without.
In my younger days, I once spent three days traversing the breadth of Sano and upon passing what appeared to be the western edge of that fair town, found myself a mile on the setting sun side of Chicken Bristle.
