Gemini 5. Two people calling to each other across a wide, deep canyon.
TITLE: DEEPENING OF COMMUNICATION
The canyon was keeping them apart and they were grateful for that. Their words swam back and forth between them like fishes in a two-way river of air, and echoes in the canyon repeated the words with a vague transparency that rose out of the depths and moved among the meanings like shimmering colors, giving new shades to them. Dusk was upon them, and their voices were growing tired. Why not climb down into the land of whispers?
