Music:Buffy Original Soundtrack - Overture - Going Through The Motions
scope: time and distance
we live on a vast canvas: in my head I'm a scientist turned spy sailing the world on a yacht or tracking down stolen solar technology on the space station, a scholar turned sword riding distant lands. Dozens of alternate lives, alternate views, other chances. It can seem a little cramped to come back inside this physical life in a London district with tiny gardens and suburban trains. And it's a shock to do it so suddenly as the doorbell waking me from a dream so real I feel guilty for the damage I've done to people by defending myself when they attacked; when I took one to the hospital she turned out to be an artists and in the dream-compressed time since the attack had drawn page after page of fantastic detailed colourscapes in van Gogh purple and yellow.
