Spring 1950 – Watching the Mountains Turn to Sand


Doyle said, “There’s no point whispering. They can’t hear you. They don’t have ears. They can see you talking but that just means they already see you. They’re watching us now. They’re always watching and they always have been.” 

I said, “If they have always been watching, why are you suddenly concerned?”

Doyle looked at me as if I were a small child asking a very stupid question. He said, “Because now they know that I know that they’re watching. Their secret is out! I can expose them to the world!”

I gave him the stupid child look. I said, “That will only work if you can find a way to let other people see them. Right now you just succeeded in making people think you are crazy.”
