My dream was a message, the reflection in the lake the messenger. I am here, in the past or in some other reality, living out someone else’s life. But how could this be? Am I actually inhabiting the body of a real, live person? And if this Jane person is indeed real and alive, then where is she now? If my own body isn’t sleeping and dreaming all of this, then what is it doing right now and where is it? Could it be that I’m living Jane’s life and my own simultaneously? If so, where is Jane? Where is her essence, her spirit, her personality, whatever it is that inhabits a person’s body?

Could it be some sort of parallel reality happening simultaneously with my own? Okay, then why would I be in the body of a nineteenth-century woman but possessing the mind of a twenty-first-century woman? Have I died and reincarnated? Can people reincarnate into the past?
