Friday the 15th, we made sail with the morning tide I have been quarantined to a store room, away from the other passengers and crew All I want to do now is return home My dear Sixsmith. I am in desperate need of your help I got hooked on a journal written in 1849 by a dying lawyer during the voyage from a Pacific island to San Francisco Half the book is missing. It’s completely killing me! A half finished book is, after all, a half finished love affair What are you reading? Old letters Why do you keep reading them? I don’t know. I’m just tryna understand why we keep making the same mistakes Over and over Our lives and our choices, each encounter… Luisa Rey, Spyglass Magazine Right! …suggest a new potential direction That’s it! The music from my dreams I call it the Cloud Atlas sextet and whole movements written imagining us meeting again and again in different lives Different ages What..What are you doing in here? We cross and re-cross our old tracks like figure skaters The love of my life? What had happened to her? I can’t explain it but I knew when opened that door… I had.. I had a dream, it was in a nightmarish cafe Blaring bright lights, underground, and no way out and the waitresses, they all had the same face Welcome to ‘Papa Song’s’ No reason to hide I know who you are, Somni 451 Yesterday, my life was headed in one direction… Today, it is heading in another …never think that the universe is against you? What the f…? Where is our money? The law says… The law? Fear, belief, love Phenomenon that determines the course of our lives This forces begin long before we are born and continue after we perish Our lives are not our own We are bound to others… past and present and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future I have begun to fear I may never hold my beloved Tilda in my arms again The problem you create is a political one Yesterday I believed I would never have done what I did today I feel like something important has happened to me Is this possible? I just met her and yet, I have fallen in love with Luisa Rey … for saving me twice You fall, I’ll catch you There is a natural order to this world, and those who try to abandon it do not fare well I believe there is another world waiting for us Sixsmith a better world and I’ll be waiting for you there.
