Jarn has decided he can get a wider view by teleporting above about 90% of the atmosphere while using telekinesis to keep from having his eardrums rupture and his blood boil
It had not occurred to me that the desert heat would feel so welcome when I got back down; it’s cold up there!
I also got my look, and as I warmed up I tried to make sense of what I had seen.
The tideless sea is indeed where I expected to find it, ahead and to the left as far as I could see. To the right, sand and mountains. But straight ahead, bordered by steep sides and even higher mountains, is what I can only describe as a trench in the land, . I think I saw water ahead, separated by higher ground from what lies below me, but I saw no sign of any connection to the tideless sea. Neither can I see an end to the trench.
I’ve wondered before if the continent on which I crashed might be rifting apart, and indeed if the lake on whose shores I now live might be part of that rift. Is it possible that this vast linear trench is part of the same system?
Jarn’s Journal is the back story of the Jarnian Confederation, in which my published stories are set. Jarn is a human-like alien who was stranded in Africa after a starship wreck some 125,000 years ago. He has met and been adopted as a god (much to his annoyance) by a group of our ancestors. A longer version of this post can be found on my main blog; his journal to date is on my author site.
