Once, many moons ago, when the Earth Mother was still young, Ba-ba-co-tay roamed the forests and woodlands. He spent his days in search of food to fill his stomach, and his nights in search of something he did not remember. Ba-ba-co-tay never slept.
One day, he ate a pretty little mushroom and fell into a deep sleep. He dreamed, for the first time in his life. In his dream, the Earth Mother came to him, flowing like a gentle stream in palest moonlight.
“Ba-ba-co-tay,”, she said, “what are you searching for?”
“I don’t remember.”, he answered.
“If you do not remember, then why do you still search?”, the Earth Mother asked gently.
