Chapter One: Art

Kathy journeyed inside herself, reliving lifetimes through memory, in quantum time.

She developed austere habits and disciplines; learning muscle control, discernment, patience. She developed the ability to flesh out the memories she wandered in, to experience them for herself as if she were truly living.

There was no path too remote for her to follow.

Chapter Two: Music

Of all the “normal” things that people occupied themselves with, the little things that filled up their day, music was the most difficult for Kathy.

It changed so little over time.

If she was careless, a melody could cause her to slip, without knowing, into another lifetime

A beating drum told a hundred thousand stories.

Chapter Three: Dance

When Kathy danced she moved without thinking.

She lost herself in the drums and rhythms.

She abandoned time in movement, in the moments flowing from the present fuge into past ages.

She relived the steps of her ancestors, felt their feelings, their fears and their hopes for the future.

Dance was a place of transcendence.

Chapter Four: Diet

Eating was a necessity, she could not avoid the nexus of memories it brought her to.

Flavors and odors haunted her.

Taste and smell transported her instantly to past times, to past ages.

Kathy found solace in the bland, comfort in modern processed foods, foods that were completely new, and entirely foreign to human experience.

Chapter Six: Recluse

Kathy had developed the ability to ward off psychic intrusions.

She built mental walls to ensure her privacy, to keep the thoughts and feelings of other people from seeping into her mental flow.

Those defenses required constant mindfulness, a diligence that stole her energy. And so, in order to rest, she preferred to be alone.
