It was so bright.

I couldn't sleep.


The dogs were barking.

When things go wrong

it gets like this.

I couldn't see.

It was so bright.

I didn't know where I was.

Everything was almost stationary.

There was water

and a boat.

And then

someone was

pouring gasoline.

"Essential beauty", I thought.

I was so tired.

I thought "Nature contains many mysteries".

I couldn't sleep.

It was hard for me to see.

All the details were strange,

strange shapes to me.

A boat was going into the water.

Various occurrences.

And the boat began to move.

There was someone in the boat.

- We're gonna try to go fast enough

to go into the night.

I saw drops of water


it was very bright.

I was moving.

All of a sudden

it was dark.

I was moving

very fast.

I saw the light

of the moon reflecting

in the moving water.

And I heard the man say something.

I felt so tired

and I was moving so fast.

I think I went to sleep

and I wanna to tell you...

- It worked.

...that I dreamed of you.
