Shopping with my parents, all of us dressed up as everyone dressed up then in downtown Dallas. The canyons formed and shaded by skyscrapers, some over thirty stories high. The cafes. The movie theaters. The clothing stores with their soft, rich carpet and cool air conditioning. The noise. The crowds of people. Long night rides home. Lying down in the back seat, listening to the muffled sounds of my parents' voices and the low, steady hum of the tires against the highway.

I try to call out to my parents, but I have no voice. I see them, but I'm paralyzed completely and can't move into the light. Only when my parents say my name is the spell broken.
