As an adolescent, Walt befriended a nocturnal visitor who visited him in his sleep. The faceless female helped sooth the stresses of the day and submerged him into a deep subconscious bliss inevitably immersing him so deeply into sleep he could not rise through the heavy fog of unconsciousness. In the mornings, there would be evidence of her visits. In his later years, she still came to him in his deepest sleep. He still fought to awaken from the fog of his mind, but now the evidence of her visits was no longer manifest, but he knew she'd been there.
