Shut your eyes, let your breathing slow. Then follow the map, from any direction, and you will find you are there now, in that place—your place. Look to the horizon; something is coming. 

A short list of things you may do when it comes:

Cry.

Scream.

Flinch.

Shut your eyes again.

Find yourself unable to shut your eyes.

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

Whoa. Listened to the first half or so on one earbud as I walked our dog, listened to the last as I drove to my blood donation (and sat in the parking lot for a while (and it was a perfectly ordinary regular donation so there)). This really drew me in. Some of the next to last bit in the dream I didn't know if I heard quite right, so I had to read the story and then listen again. Wow. Story and reader so good.
