A fateful moment when a soldier rushes in costs Jonathon his life, while his friends grieve and place the blame upon themselves. Karma comes calling with a man named Ammon and this is where the real story begins. Are we in a dream lost in the desert? Is any of this real?
A timeline of twenty years unravels as we find the truth of a journey through bereavement, searching for a reason to go on and what it means to do your duty in the face of moral questions of who is right and who is wrong. I was delighted with the depth of the internal narrative, as we moved to the oasis and discovered the truth.
The lines between life and death become a hazy mirage. In the salient voice of the narrator, we find our own struggle to move on, when as individuals we face the inevitable choices we must make to survive our own existence. Well done!
*An interesting side note on this story is that a friend told me about a dream a friend of hers had a few months ago. It is strikingly similiar to this story and experienced a powerful deja vu as I read this. The shocking part of the similiarity is the man who dreamed this had just awakened from a coma and this oasis as described in this tale- is where he went.
