White Antelope by ursulav White Antelope by ursulav
There are various phrases that jangle insistently in my head and make a weird little space around themselves. They go away for awhile, and then show up again. I sort of assume that some day I will find myself in a strange dreamworld—possibly that’s what happens when you die, I don’t know, or I will accidentally fall into a fairy mound while chasing an interesting bird—and these phrases will turn out to be critically important to my survival. (The alternative is that I’m mildly insane.)

One of the most persistent of these is “Antelope women are not to be trusted.”

My guess would be that those phrases are the little things you brought back with you from dreams you can't remember, at least not fully. I have some of those... But the only consistent thing is that there is a lot of running involved... In any case, I definitely do not trust this antelope woman: she looks a bit devious, if intriguing(as always!).

I get that feeling sometimes; sometimes they rhyme. "Tinker trollies bring me lollies." :nod:
