Maybe it’s your unconsciousness warning you what’s behind those trees. After all, time is as malleable here as the events that transpire while you dream. And this place is so fitting for a dream; there is no beginning, no end, just what you see and a place that has receded from view. Somewhere that keeps you tossing and turning in your sleep. What’s strange, though, is that there are no real bends, nowhere does the path branch off. How long before this lack of orientation makes you uncomfortable? You will eventually remember that this is only a dream and pinch your own arm. But you remain here, on this road. You can only see a short distance before it disappears between the trees. Do you try to keep yourself from imagining what exactly it is that this road curves ever so gently towards? And why is the forest so quiet? I’m not saying you should be thinking about things like these; maybe it’s for the best to just take things at face value. In that case you’re just out on a walk and everything looks like more of the same, like you’ve passed this way before just a moment ago. You decide to wait and do nothing. The subdued light that filters through the crowns of the trees falls on your skin without warming you, in your ears you hear the blood pumping through your veins. Then, all of a sudden, someone appears from behind the trees, an elderly man who looks a little like you. After that, a child appears, and this is you with your morose expression, the buckteeth of your youth. The teen that passes by after has lost the buckteeth but not the expression. The twenty-something looks happier, though. You realize that, logically, you are next in line and fall into step as the person before you disappears through the trees. Start walking, you think, you might be here for a while.
