She is Dan Butxn, the dreamer who rose from the sand and rocks to see the wind, a human with no where to go. This is Dan who heeds Dot's words. Painting is simple: The hand applies the paint while the mind watches. Dot dies (after a violent disagreement with Dan), and Dan moves into Dot's studio, once Willa's studio. Dan learns to paint, and art quickly replaces/displaces her need for human contact. But why are people who know Dan dying? Or disappearing and then dying? And who's sending all the weird messages to her machine? And who's burning down houses? And why do Dan's feelings about the world around her remain so vague? And who reappears in a lump of light to pull Dan safely back down to earth? Can this savior be trusted? Read for love of language, language that borders on fatalist poetry. Read, and see life thru the eyes of a creative spirit. Travel the twisting path thru the unusual, glorious mind of an artist. Journey thru an ordinary world with the woman seeking, and always seeing, the extraordinary.
