"The Return"

Here's a sketch from tonight in the studio. It's a little creepy, I suppose. But I expect that it is evocative (i.e., it elicits a response). From what is the child returning? Was the experience "enlightening" or "frightening" for the child? Is the child scared or contemplative as he (she?) walks up the stairs (and back into "reality")? The blurry nature of the human figure only contributes to the ambiguity methinks.  The technical question is whether to cut-out the area to the left of the banister in order to continue the blackness of space. I think it might be good "as is" though. Feel free to comment on whether I should alter it in that way or not.
