Sijbren Kramer: Basnig

I couldn’t tell which way the world was around. Stars flickered from all directions. The ocean held the image of the sky perfectly. There was no bearing to find myself, nothing to ground me. My mind was free to twist and turn, and nothing would change. Everything was perfect.
