For every student I taught to write.
I wake up in a stupor. My face is pressed to the gravelly ground and my arm is outstretched, under me, resting in a patch of grass. Where am I? I have forgotten what I was doing. Something came over me, as is often the case. A flash of light that blurs my vision, that slurs my speech, and bows my legs like they are being strung by an archer. It has happened before, but only started recently. A sudden, unwavering need to sleep and then I collapse. But why am I here on this pathway? Where was I going?
