name

She learned that light begins each morning and departs every evening, replaced by the moon and stars, or sometimes just by darkness. She also learned about mobility. This lesson did not come quickly or without suffering. 

Many befores and afters passed before she discovered that by concentrating on what lays before her, she could rock forward, which also resulted in her swaying back. 

She also moved in another way–going back to times she experienced in prior moments. She traveled back to the darkness. She re-experienced the first flash of light. She strung together befores, afters, and betweens.

“Memory.”

Memory travel?

“You make the water that we call rain.”

She found no reason not to believe she created the rain.

“But you need a name.”
