la diritta via era smarrita

Last night some animal woke me up. Or else I dreamed up some hideously menacing animal noises, some duet of lowing or growling with a higher-pitched whine building in the background. It sounded like screeching, like pigs being butchered. Or a coyote braying. And it was getting louder and louder.

Anyhow, I woke up in terror, right at the crescendo—presumably to go outside and rescue whatever it was from harm—and there was nothing but dark. Dark and Peter Pan snoring next to me, sinuses straining.

Maybe the red curtains are giving me hellish dreams?

It's the heart of darkness. Sailing inexorably towards you. Fortunately in level three you bought a machete from the ferryman, and you still have a whole cash of life-giving cloudberries AND the Cloak of Blessing. You should be able to level-up if you keep attacking, retreating, and then attacking again - drain the life force! The Princess needs you to make it in one piece!

I think it's the snoring.
