I turned on the TV as I usually do, but that night was different. The TV, which I always watch with the volume set to 25, became inaudible to me, and instead I heard someone’s voice speak to me. “They say the spirits of the dead become stars,” said the voice. I ignored what I heard, such scattered fantasies and strange thoughts must be ignored. Well, how about that voice? Do I have the confidence to admit it? “How long will this last?” I said to myself, and right then the sound of the TV came back.
