I helped paint a mural this past week in Cedra’s parent’s home (after they installed actual stone arches in their living room). It came out pretty.

    No problem with Tesfay returning to a dark planet wearing a symbiont? Could confuse his eventual therapist in that they will be communicating with multiple beings…

    Your murals are very compelling, Chris. I want to go into them and nap under your honey locust in its endless summer. Their pull is remarkable.

    As is Emily’s push. She really can’t let herself go, can she? Even when she wants to. Something tells me this situation will stay until she confronts her intransigence head-on. Not sure what could force that — and I’m not at all sure that forcing it out would cause it to stay. A great deal of Emily’s competence and coping comes from her ability to bury her humanity. Unearthing it will be tectonic. That is, geologically slowly.

    The murals are so properly dimensional. A joyous set of paintings.

    This feels like a fake out not quite the end of this story yet. Even though it is real it won’t end so quickly.

      It’s an interstitial. Things are still moving, we’re just at a fulcrum point that we will see referenced later for things said and done or not said or done that will be momentous later. Another rule of Story.
