Moreover, I was further perplexed when I noticed a single scallop shell left at the base of the grave, in the complete opposite direction of the arrow. Not being able to deduce any inherent symbolism in the field, I began researching a bit about Bryan to see if there were any connections that I could find. I could find out that Bryan was struck by lightning near his home, and died a month after the strike. Furthermore, I…

Maybe it wasn’t trust, maybe he was just oblivious. Anyone who laid eyes on me dancing and bumping down CPW would have thought I won the lottery. And that is how it seemed to me as well.
