Three stages are presented.


A comforting memory. Look behind you. What do you see? I feel the soft soil beneath my feet as my toes wiggle. Did it just rain? That tree is very shady. A sign of a good location to nap. When did the sun come out? The grass is so verdant. It must be Spring.

Something is happening to you, pay attention. How did it get there? The toes stop wiggling and start blistering. Why are these rocks so large? A bird lies in agony just beyond. Where did everyone go? My tongue is parched, I need water.

The unseen is imminent. Tread carefully. Who are you? Where are you? How are you?
