Story[edit | edit source]



I had a dream.

I was carrying a six year old child on my back. I am sure that it was my own child. The strange thing is, at some point in its life it had gone blind and had its head shaved. I asked it when it had gone blind, to which it replied a long time ago. Its voice was definitely the voice of a child; however, it spoke like an adult. Moreover, as an equal.
