The woman put down her needles and sighed.

She was so tired now, and she’d have to stop soon.

She’d been weaving since the dawn of time.

At her feet a long, long tapestry; the rise of oceans, the fall of forests, great animals, the tiniest ant, the roar of whales, the self-important mutterings of humans, the spring, summer, autumn and winter, repeated so many times.

She wiped her brow and took it up again.
