I decided, then, to describe the room in which we rested. I chose to describe small objects in great detail. I decided to describe, first, a cushion. I chose to describe this cushion after resting.

The cushion I chose to describe appeared to me to be smaller than all other cushions in the room in which we rested. Perhaps, I chose to describe it because it was amongst the smallest objects in the room.

Describing a small object, I reasoned, I think, was likely to be less taxing than describing a large object might have been. Before proceeding, however, I doubted whether I had understood that I needed to rest before describing any object.

“Am I tired?” I asked him.

“Rest,” he replied.

I rested.
