Waking Up the Day

2000 october 18

In the realm of total silence, a small child yawns and stretches.  Occasionally, he pauses to grasp at straws.  The room fills with a flood of spattered rainbow and warm mist.  An old woman walks in and says “We will wake up the day.  Humanity has been caught up in dark and tangled slumbers for far too long.  We need to see the absolute truth, to taste it and smell it.”

The child laughs and rubs his hands together.  The woman opens the window and the room fills up with the caws, tweets and cackles of hundreds of nearby birds.  Two more people enter the room.  They all start laughing and chanting the words “Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes….”
