I read this in the book "Kafka on the shore" which was:
Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keeps changing directions. You change direction but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Over and over you play this out, like some ominous dance with death just before dawn.
Does "some ominous dance with death just before dawn" refer to one of those dreams we dream just before dawn in which death is just is so near to us but we manage to evade it in some way"? Or "state of emerging victoriously after traversing through the storm"? I doubt the latter possibility because I think would have only been relevant when there were some reference to traversing the storm? But I'm not sure.
