During the journey by train the gnomes slept. As often is the case, we clear our brain and keep an open mind during our travels. This is evident in that our dreams change spiritually, as our subconscious thoughts are more in tune with what is going on around us. In this way we prepare for change.
The gnomes were ready for change, however it took a period of adaptation and searching before they could really accept this change. A magic moment sometimes happens and in that moment the gnomes embraced their new future. They were at peace both physically and spiritually.
