Our name is Pamela Wight, but only she is a middle-aged woman.
She isn’t always middle-aged, and she isn’t always a woman.
At this point though, her Earth self is unable to comprehend the truth. But once, long ago and yet still now (on the time spectrum that surrounds us, even though most refuse to see it), she and I are one on an enchanted island of being.
You may say that I’m a liar, since I stated that we aren’t always a woman. In our world, the one of Endoplactum, we are not woman or man, girl or boy. We are light-hearted beings who float in and out of the soft rainbow of clouds and sun, of surprise and pain, of hope and despair.
We are not middle-aged on this island, nor are we young. On Endoplactum, we are not juveniles or elders, children or ‘don’t-even-think-of-asking-my-age.”
That’s it. We just are.
As an Endoplactum being, I watch my other self, the Pamela Wight on the mid-Earth spectrum, go through her short time span from birth to where she is now as a woman.
I feel sorry for her and all those who call themselves “human beings” in that sphere. So, I visit her – me – as often as possible. I show up in different forms, which is beyond fun. I’ve been a shadow on her bedroom wall (which wasn’t the best form, since one night she woke up, saw me – the shadow – dancing, and screamed bloody murder).
So more often, I’m the soft whisper in her ear, the sweet puppy who stops by for a pet, or even (and I just did this yesterday as she walked in the woods) the beautiful lime-green creature of the forest. Again, though, she screamed, calling me a “worm” and flinging me aside.
My most successful visitations occur when she’s writing her stories. I whisper in her ear. More action! Add magic! Dare to explore with those squiggles called letters!
I am her muse, and oh how I enjoy the stories we create.
But shhhh, don’t tell her. She thinks she does it all on her Earthly own.
