presence of two wisdomkeepers at the gateway of the universe."

the refrigerator and the distant song of the cicadas. As I prepare to
leave this magical place, my heart pangs somewhat. To leave seems almost

at the weight of the wind. Owls hooting in the dark. Stars - more than
I've ever seen."

and sensitivity, joy and creativity, and thus stimulates relaxation,
