Cultivate and sustain a belief in miniature people. Assume that they are always just out of sight, living parallel lives that will, as a matter of course, occasionally almost intersect with your own. Carefully record the vanishings of any and all small objects: location, description, ownership and time. Investigate openings, holes, and possible passageways in the natural world as well as in the home. Get on your belly with a flashlight and peer lengthily, longingly in. Consider the architecture of the underside of a field, or a wall between two windows, and construct in imagination the labyrinths in which miniature people live and through which they travel, which you can never enter at your present size. Daydream about the small hardships they face, and the pleasures of being tiny. Daydream about the chances of your becoming miniature one day.
