I was having an ordinary, pleasant dream of a dinner party. The phone rang, and the hostess said it was for me. I thought, “No one knows I’m here; who could it be?” It was my great grandaunt Yeksabet. She said “Don’t forget about us. We had a deal. You were going to tell our story.” I had been neglecting them, and felt a little guilty.
