...And this is only a beginning, my love, truly this is a beginning. Everything that has happened will play again and again in the heart of yr mind, like a sour wind that cups over the foothills after its long journey over desert plains. And what can you recall? amid such acrid memorials and disdainful histories - a world remains - as beautiful as the hour we first watch the comets emblazon each other's peaks and pitches of colors in each other's irises lost in the jaden mountain valleys where yarrow grows among the ponderosa as well as the juniper. And in the curious etchings of our eyes, of the ancient sky bedecked with a thousand golden tsink-tsinks, each sordid memory will be transfigured under the salty sweat of the Sea, and we will know that which we have always known but had forsook... it is the Great Love that returns to us after having been gone so long...
