When I was a tiny little kid, I was part of the Other World you live in. I recall a vague blur of colors and sounds, a faint memory: me on tiptoes, wearing my mother's too-big high heel shoes, a lipstick in hand, my nose pressed against the mirror. I must have leaned too far, because the next thing I knew, I was falling... falling... falling... down a black tunnel. I landed here. I looked around at the darkness pressing on me from all directions. It was quiet. I screamed. I heard nothing. Fear seized me. I knew I could never climb back to the world I knew. There was nothing in this desolate world to comfort me, nothing to hold. Suddenly, I saw a chair in the distance. I ran to it, I sat on it, and I waited... and waited.... and waited....
