In my head, there is a beach made of fine, clean sand that runs up to a set of bluffs as far as the eye can see. There is only one building: a lighthouse that stands sentry to warn away any ships that might come too close to the shore.
Inside the lighthouse, there are stairs going up to the beacon and down into a basement that is full of wooden crates. The things in the crates are mysteries; dark hidden things that need to shun the light of day in order to survive.
Down the beach a small way there is a fire in a fire pit. A lone figure sits cross legged watching the fire. It's a small dark-haired boy, but it's not all at once. I understand that this boy is an avatar, a representation of something larger. I think the boy represents some hidden part of my self, some inner domain that talks to me in the middle of the night.
He turns to me and asks

"What have you done?"

And then he walks away.
