"Amazing. Simply amazing."
Oh staring from this room at the beautiful night sky. Shining celestial bodies, they make me so happy. I may be trapped inside this room, constantly haunted by such pillars of papers, books, text, documents, but I am drawn, drawn to the sky. It's beauty, oh, it's beauty. Telescope is my eyes. Wall is my hand. I am simply in between. I can hear their words about me, running through me, from eye to hand. They keep me going as I willingly stare at the sky. Oh, what would I do without this tapestry? I cannot bear to think of it, for that may make Telescope, Wall, and myself so unhappy. I try not to see such towers of rubbish that sit around me; all I wish is to see the sky. Telescope is happy to see the sky. Wall is happy to hear the words.

Let the light shine!
