We talked half the night. There were strange noises on the street, I was restless. The limitations of this world were cutting off my breath. I held the urn for a long time. Millions of voices. They feel warm. They carry this incredible possibility, they need to be heard.
I knew that young people are ready to think and tell the truth. How hurt they are.
Shevek, forgive me. You’re driving me crazy!
The worst thing is how you fall out of your world, rub your eyes for a moment, and then don’t crawl back into bed to finish dreaming the nightmare
I am very optimistic. There is much less species loss happening in this world, temperatures could be limited and as traces the structures are in place to prevent the worst.
