She is able to split her mind and see "the shadow of herself tending store and prostrating itself before Jody" while her true self "sits under a shady tree with the wind blowing through her hair and clothes." When she is finally able to keep part of her mind centered on nature, she becomes strong enough to stand up to Joe.
