    Summary

    Mr. Linus Baker‘s life ended precisely four weeks, six days, eleven hours and eighteen minutes ago.
    That is to say, his old life. His new life began at that same moment, when he stepped out DICOMY‘s offices and onto a train platform. He sometimes feels quite at sea, since the amount of time he has spent living his new life is so out of balance with all the years he lived out his old one.
    -
    Or, life on Marsyas Island through the lens of three everyday activities: Eating, sleeping and dancing.

    Summary

    'Do you have a heart attack?' Phee asked from somewhere under his elbow. He startled so hard that he almost fell off the tree stump.
    'No, erm, of course not,' eyeing her as he straightened his sweater. 'What makes you say so?'
    'You have a shallow breath and hold your belly like you're in pain,' she replied matter-of-factly. She looked tired, and there was a frown over her face which Linus didn't like. 'Just like Lucy said in his last book report.'
    Because of course Lucy, dear but morbid child that he was, picked for his reading of the month a book about cardiac problems after he learned about Linus' high blood pressure. As was to be expected, the symptoms, complications, and death cases were the focus points in his rather lengthy presentation.

    _
    A story of three months between Linus' return to the island and his move to the Marsyas House, in which he learns that there are more ways to express his feelings than just arts and crafts projects.
