When I was younger I had a dream about a rock that emerged from the middle of a lake. It was night and a bit hard to see so I swam out to look at it. It was the face of Alice. Her eyes were closed and her expression was one of sleep. I climbed onto the rock and laid my entire body on top of it. I could still feel the days heat radiating from some deep hidden Source like a granite sun. I told her(almost like a promise) I will never be the same again.
