Two boys sat on a log in the middle of a valley. The trees surrounding them blocked out the sunlight and the boys had trouble seeing their hands in front of their faces. A woman appeared from a cluster of trees. She held a basket in one hand and a jug of water in the other. Her eyes were closed and she walked towards them as if she could see. She could, in fact, see through her eyelids. The boys were entranced by her silver hair and wondered what was in the basket. They stretched their hands out towards her.
