Chapter One: Art
Kathy journeyed inside of herself, reliving lifetimes through her memories. She relived those lives in quantum time, which was not time at all, it was outside of time, it was no-time.
In that mysterious space she communed with her ancestors, and under their tutelage she taught herself all of the disciplines she required to master her powers, learning from them a way that allowed her to function in society.
She wanted to be a normal person, to experience normal things, to feel the weather, or human touch, to see the beauty of the world and of humanity, to listen to music, and the sounds of the city, to smell flowers, and food cooking, and the body of her lover.
She wanted those things for herself, she wanted more than to just relive them through her intimate connection to the past.
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.
She took up the plastic arts, she painted, and drew, she sculpted.
She took the time to recreate the visions of her ancestors, and to capture through various media, her own unique experience.
