"Acceptance will come," she whispered.
I shook my head, But I have so many questions and I know and understand so little, I said.
"Look often, Wonder always," she replied. "Understanding rides two horses, Knowledge and Wonder. Ride with them in your heart. Understanding will come."
Understanding rides two horses, I repeated quietly. And slowly, for that idea alone, understanding came.
Am I dead, I asked again.
"You will never die, for you will live forever in the hearts of others."
And I understood that too, and I smiled.
It doesn't matter, does it? I asked, already knowing the answer.

    I’m absorbed by Roylsden’s original style and this episode hits a peak - but enticingly there’s more to come.
