    B R I G H T Something tells me Im going to like this place.

    I say it out loud, as reassurance. After the gruelling northward journey through the endless night and the intense moons of the months prior, it feels like Ive moved

    into an untamed galaxy that shines from within. The landscape is wild and liberated and Im amazed that all growth spirals and pulses outwards from circular apertures

    as opposed to the linear worlds I had previously inhabited.

    The vision is overwhelming in its brightness. In dazzling contrast to thebleak world I had come from, here radiance prevails. Delicate oating lms of colour

    dissolve across the horizon. Diamond clear winds whip up from the valleys to lick my skin and I am surrounded by pulsing geometric creatures with immaculate

    shimmering. They hustle and croon and y, dissolving as stars in the palms of my hand. I am convinced I will never tire of this place; that I could explore this

    lost Eden. Yet I sense its extremes and I imagine the depths beyond me, the potential for f loods and storms. Am I afraid? Yes. But it is a risk worth taking

    and so I edge out into the abrupt rush of white circular light enveloping me.

    Your eyes are blinding. And moving into the brilliance, into these luxurious jet black eyes that invite me in, the road illuminates

    and I feel so stunningly alive.

    W AT E R P R O O FI had been cruising, besotted by the starlight language of lust and reluctantly

    knew I had to push on. It wasnt long before the storms raged on in. Faced with this torrential world of water, I tried to u-turn back to those sultry eyes.

    But they were gone.

    Day is breaking and the sky apocalyptically esh toned. Nestled between hyper-real pink and aqua mountains are electric blue rivers leading

    to a vast re ection that must be the ocean. I am already in ve feet of water. How do I cross it all?

    A pulsing square ruby appears, hovering before me, beckoning. I watch it seducing me, dancing, pulsing energetically. Yes!

    The ruby attaches swiftly. We ride and my crimson companion takes me down through the river. We must be ten feet underwater but we sweep through the liquid

    e ortlessly, all the while the ruby shines the way. We rise and I gasp for breath and for a while we soar across yellow and pink elds that ank the river.

    But there is still one river to cross and this is deep and mysterious, and the rains are whipping me blind. The steadfast crimson Blinder provides the source, and so we

    dive and then rise, and then we are sur ng. I glimpse the shore, if only, if only we can reach it. We take wave after wave and the last one dumps us

    nakedly onto dirt. I am exhausted and drenched but my blinding ruby is dry and still with me, pulsing wildly at the same rate as my heart

    and I fall into a sleep of bliss.

    R E C H A R G E A B L EIts a mirage!

    I am so excited as I wake that I scream it out into the salty air. The vast ocean I had feared is actually an immense desert salt plain, ready for the taking.

    I am dry and warm and there is no trace of the crimson Blinder who had put a spell on me the night before.

    The esh-toned sky has remnants of the nights stars and as I bask in the beauty of this ancient dazzling plain a shooting star blazes a trail above. And then

    a giant orb appears over the horizon, larger than any sunrise I have ever experienced. Intense heat lls the air. I must get Moving.

    There is a strong headwind and the travelling is slow. Rest is what I need, so I look for some shade, any shade, but there is none to be found. I imagine

    Im hallucinating as the Blinder X appears, clad in silver, humming a tune. X thrives in this potent landscape of high-end power plants and enormous transformers,

    occasionally recharging via leads and coils along the way. Perhaps the whole planet is hooked up to this place? This powerhouse of a stranger pumps my metal

    and we take o and Im ying. I feel free and X is on re, pulsing, never tiring and propelling me onwards.

    S O L I DWaking gently, the memory of the lush evening with my silver stranger lingers.

    I smile and take in the land of technicolour magic that now caresses me. Flamboyant and glowing cones, triangles and baubles glide by, encouraging me

    to get up and dance. And so I do.

    For the longest time and perhaps for the rst time ever I feel free of the incessant buggery of my mind. There are no lists, no longings and no anxieties.

    I havent eaten or washed in days but the sustenance seems to be coming from pure presence. Silence overwhelms me, both from within and out and

    its then that I see the magni cent blue Blinder, with its perfect and constant source of white light. I look directly into the endless illumination and realise instantly

    that the diodes are mirrors in which I see myself.

    There is a voice, You and I are intertwined and the source within pulses through my entire being, lighting up the road. I have discovered my internal power

    and am ready to ride. The possibilities are blinding.
