Trees Dead for Half a Century (Bottom of Pine Flat Reservoir)

In this room, you can freeze a moment in your life and examine each aspect, even down to the molecular level. While someone is about to slug you, his fist raised, you can observe the fly by your ear, the dust mites under the chair, the body ash all over the furniture, the atoms floating in empty space. You can examine the facial expressions of your loved ones revealing fear, disapproval, anger, amusement. You can go into other rooms to observe things before they are used up, suggesting or corresponding to or reflecting what you perceive as the meaning of your life at that moment, slightly puzzling in retrospect, all the molecules moving together as though conscious of how the patterns fit together, as if all possibilities were known.

Go to the next room.
Take a quiet path.
