It is often said that wisdom comes with pain. Long ago in the north of the Indian subcontinent, a being of great wisdom arose. There is pain in his story, but perhaps the story we know is not all of the truth. Perhaps wisdom came at a greater price than we know.
This is a vision of what it might have taken to bring it into the world.
The Unfettered Dream is a short story of about 4,000 words.

About the Author
S.A. Barton lives in coastal Virginia with his wife, teen stepson, two under-5s, and demanding cat (as they all are). His path to the present was a strange, sometimes harrowing, and winding one; you may find this reflected in his writing. He has previously appeared in the pages of Penumbra magazine, in Daily Science Fiction, and in OMNI Reboot. He's a winner of the first Amazing Stories Gernsback Writing Contest. He is also proud to be a self-published indie author with dozens of short ebooks and collections to his credit, which may be found through sabarton.com. He also tweets far too much as @Tao23. While most of S.A. Barton's work is in science fiction, some of it strays into other genres such as fantasy, mainstream, alternate history and others -- like the cat, it wanders some.
