"A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities." -J.R.R. Tolkien
It was as if the man's wife awoke from a bad dream. She did not die. Reincarnation? A dream within a dream within a dream? I call her "the narrator". She possesses every faculty of the human spirit, experiencing the very depths of hell, and at times ecstatic visions of heavenly realms. In every new light she is another. Time doesn't make its mark upon her, for she finds herself in all times.
