Will I be ok inside there with my shadow? Is this a serious question? All questions are serious, or must be considered serious until we have some frame of reference to allow us to filter them. Should I remove my shoes? Should I take my clothes off? Should I wear special robes? The cloud passes the sun again leaving the head of my shadow cleanly in the doorway. I am knocked off my feet by a sudden bright pain in my head. My last memory is a cold delicate splat of the back of my head hitting the thawing earth.
