SUMMER: I dream about flying. Not really flying. More like… floating. Like, it starts out I’m running really fast.

And then the… terrain… gets all rocky and steep. But I don’t slow down. I just climb higher with every stride. Before I know it, I’m… floating.

 I’m going so fast my feet don’t even touch the ground. I’m up in the air and I’m … I don’t know… free. It’s this incredible feeling.

But then I look down. And the minute I do… everything changes. There I am… I’m floating, high above the earth, nothing can touch me, right? I’m free and I’m safe and it hits me, just like that… I’m completely, utterly, alone.

And then I wake up. I’ve never told anyone that.
