Close your eyes now, dive deep into your mind. Can you feel the emotions twirling around you? Can you hear the wind rustling through the leafs of the trees of happiness? Can you feel the light of joy on your face?

Open your eyes, feel the deep darkness around you. Look at this monster, right in front of you! Look at his terrifying face, his frightening eyes and his evil smile. Feel the fear it triggers inside of you. It is enormous, it is gigantic, it is huge. You are just a speck of dust, you are weak, you are helpless, you can not deny it.

Reach out for your weapon, you can’t see it, but it’s always there. You just have to grab it, don't hesitate. Feel your weapon, gain the strength you don’t have, stand the storm that blows you away. Beat that monster, defeat it. A beast, beaten by just a grain of dust.

It’s time to rest, relax, sit down. Watch the gleaming grass grow. Let the sun rise, the light sparkle in your eyes. The wind plays with your hair. Can you see these colorful dreams drifting through the sky? Enjoy the the pleasant heat. Take a deep breath.

What does the air taste like?
