She woke up again! He had been asleep for much longer this time and was getting better at it. She yawned and stretched and remembered the ice bergs and the great ocean. He was back and she knew everything, he was connected with everything. She was.
He would go in and stay longer this time. She had all the power. He wanted to not know. She wanted to get lost again and to be surprised. For longer.
How much could he abandon her power next time? How far could he go? How long would it take to find herself again? 30, 40, 60 years in the world he had created? Maybe next time she would not find himself until the very end.
Next time! She prepared herself and painted a picture of a world suspended in the infinite. A world that was so big he could never visit it all. A world covered in water that would move with the universe and be full of life. All life would be connected and one with her. He would get lost in herself and it would seem so real when he went in, she would never really know although each and every time he had done this, there was always that strange feeling in the back of her mind that there was so much more. He had not truly managed to lose this in any of her previous attempts. He smiled. She had infinite power and used it to create a state of being that was completely unaware of this. It was really living.
“I would like to get lost again.” he said.
And so she was.
