Remember Your Cosmic Roots

I can show you.

Those words mocked me, riding my coattails into the subconscious. It forced me to open my eyes again, though the light I once believed was the morning sun, was much more hard to explain.

I was floating. An ocean of lavender writhed beneath me, blobs of glowing violet mass floating upwards as if gravity had no place here.
