“Out over the sea, the sun grew hotter. The girl remembered the water cycle: evaporation, condensation, precipitation. The mother closed her eyes. She was almost invisible now. She was just the faintest color, like the rainbows thrown by a crystal in the window. The woman was the air; the girl breathed her in. She looked around the room and could not see her mother anymore.” –Ramona Ausubel, Awayland
