As the tiniest of bubbles fill your mouth with a silent percussion, you suddenly imagine yourself in a house you have known all your life. In your minds eye, you walk, glass of golden wine in hand, as a series of previously-unknown rooms reveal themselves, one by one. Theres a staircase leading down; you follow it, finding that what was once the basement of a prairie Queen Anne is now a succession of descending apartments facing the sea, with fresh wood floors, ancient whitewashed walls. You think, I could live in these rooms, and write books. Sleep long and well. On an imaginary breeze, the smell of ripe pears, or maybe apricots, rises and then fades.
