Clearing. It’s a clearing! My eyes watered from the salty sweat that was dripping down my face. I was so hot and tired. I held the large palm leaf above my head, slightly protecting myself from the sun. I looked around and saw that the clearing was mostly sand, apart from a few palm trees none of which large enough to bear a coconut. I stumbled over to one of the larger trees and plopped down. The air was hot and muggy, it just made me feel heavier. I figured that if I made a shelter, it might be better for me in the long run. I tried to lay down to take a nap but the hot sand made that very hard. I took a few palm leaves from the tree and set them under me. I lay my head down, it felt like I was sinking into the ground. I closed my eyes and drifted into the large realm of relaxation.
