Also, there is one more bit of planting imagery in the pit at the end. Cedar branches waving says that there was a time when Sandwalker did not sleep near her and she would get up and check on him, right after the dirt at the bottom of the pit gives way and he is almost completely buried, but pulled out by his friends. The Shadow children say , "we did not know. In the future unsleeping eyes will watch you". Has he been resting in the ground to sleep ? (he has a vision of being a naked worm of consciousness after he crouches and " stretches" himself.) did they not know that he needed to plant and became helpless during his sleep cycle?
I think the sleep cycle might involve something like putting down roots. Maybe I am crazy. In any case, he almost gets sucked down in that pit by the shifting dirt.

> One more thing - after Sandwalker digs up the honey and the the hive to feed Seven girls waiting, her belly is described as round like a melon, and he says dont lean on him too much or he will split. Then later his sleeping place is described as a place where bushes could be planted. Do they need to plant somehow to rest?

That this tree spoke to the unseen no more than him, engendering no babes in women."
