I hope this sweeps you away... that's what I was aiming for, anyway.

Imagine... a seed. It's little, underground, unnoticed. A drop of water from the land up above drips slowly down, down, down... it hits the seed. Suddenly, there's hope. Suddenly, the seed begins to grow...
Imagine... a tree. Your tree. A tree you've known since it was a little seed. Go there. Feel its breath. Look at its leaves, or does it have leaves? Is there fruit? Is it a happy place?

Leave your tree now. Go to a station. A train station. A train station you've never seen in your life before.  You're helpless, lost. You look around for someone to ask what to do. There are many people like you. People who stick a mile out because they don't know what to do.
Suddenly a guard shouts, "All tourists get on now!" You're unsure, as are many people around you. The guard repeats. "If you don't know where you are or what to do, GET ON THIS TRAIN NOW!" You have no choice. You step on the train.
But this is a train journey like no other. At times, the driver seems to have gone mad. Or even, at times there doesn't seem to be a driver at all. The train hurtles dangerously from side to side. Each corner comes with a shout from the passengers. Is it from fear, worry, or excitement?
But at other times... the journey is peaceful. You're relaxed. The tracks are straight in front. A woman sits next to you. You smile at her, as if to say, "This is the life, isn't it?"
But this journey has been going on a while now. And suddenly it hits you. Suddenly you panic. You don't know where you're going! Is this train ever going to stop? You ask the woman next to you. "Do you know where we're going?" She shakes her head. You ask the guard. "Where are we going?" He doesn't know. Nobody knows. Except the train driver, and you don't even know where he is!
But there's nothing you can do, and after a while, you sigh and except this. The train hurtles on into the distance.........
But who is the train driver?
