The streets filled with sleek cars and lined with sleek business and shopping pedestrians – gone.
There are trees, bigger and more, and there are roads, different roads but roads nonetheless, and the water is in the same place, diamond-studded under a brilliant sky she could have sworn was cloudy only a few minutes ago.
The high rise building she’d worked in – gone. The bitchy boss from hell she works for – gone. Good.
But her entire base of reality is gone. Bad.

This is such a rollercoaster ride! She may be taking the good with the bad but its with the very very bad…im surprised shes not insane…oh wait!!! Maybe she is???
speaking as one who has had glimpses (fleeting, momentary and only in passing, thank god!) I feel for your protagonist (protagona?), it’s tough to know that there no place other than here, now.
This, I think sums up reality for your character, in the moment, right now. We all need a strong base from which to function.
