BOOK OF THE SEA




1

Great Friend
be kind to me...
The sea is so wide,
and my boat so small.




Note to self: Really wanted to use this, but couldn't make it fit: "And tides of grief swelled within her, and carried her to the Sea."


#

On the sixth day of a month of changing winds, Waterstone’s infant son passed away;
And her heart was filled with loss,
And twelve cycles of the moon passed in sorrow.

Yet she lived, and continued to live,
With grief, with exhaustion, but with openness,
Seeking to understand life as it unfolded before her.

And on the anniversary of his death, tides of grief swelled within her,
And her heart once again overflowed with loss and longing,
And she walked to the Sea.

She came upon the shores –
Upon sand, and surf, and foam,
And sang to the waves,
And spoke to them of her son.

She spoke to the Sea, and the Sea spoke to its Source –
The Source from which we have all come,
And to which we shall all return.

And He is a friend to Man and the children of men;
And to every creature in whom the breath of life dwells;
And to every thing to which the breath of life is yet to come.

And He is a friend to the sky and the children of the sky;
And a friend to the seas and the children of the seas;
And a friend to the earth and the children of the earth.

And He took her gently in the palm of His hand, and said to her:

I know that you fret that anniversaries mark distance,
That time is bearing those you love and have lost further away.
Yet time is not a river running away, but an ocean around you in which you are steeped.
Look at the craftswoman – Time surrounds her, as do her dwelling place,
her family, her clan, her tribe, her habitat, her dances, her rituals.

Know that even in the darkest night, you are not alone.
My love is around you.

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
