MIRAGES is a story about finding resources of human power, told with a strong female voice. The protagonist contemplates a close relationship, the different faces of love, the sensation of senses and the end of a relationship. Her mind broadens slowly from individual remembrances towards the community and recognition of her own powers. She shifts her energies towards a greater, communal purpose.
