Be of Good, Compassionate Courage
Dandelions…
They flutter, now I see
Fiery lions…
They're dancing with me

I am the scars minutes before the sunlit dawn...

Secret journeys

A benevolent entity.
An eternal presence presiding over me.
A creator, watching and observing.

Village in the Valley left behind, and then it's a fine find
