I turned around wishing for something I could recognize or identify with. Again, all I’d encountered as I searched was additional debris, and another “road block” sign. The second sign was bigger than the first, and it had an almost eerie glow about it. It seemed to mock me. I stopped in front of the sign and began navigating a way out of this vortex of uncertainty.
