Lord of the Deep: I begin my journey.

We had rehearsed, we had got ready in our robes. I was in deepest, wettest Derbyshire and yet….

As we all stood outside the double doors listening to a man in a skirt reading us the introduction text.

“To empty the wells,

To empty the wells of the land,

To empty the shallow wells of the land,

To empty the deep wells furnished with hoisting ropes”

********

I began to question where and when I was. Was I willow or Limma.

Gilgamesh knocked upon the the double doors of the Peach Room for the last time. From then on they would be the temple doors.

The Guardian of the temple opened the doors. Gilgamesh strode in, inclining his head towards the Guardian. Then as one the six fates I lined up behind him.
We enter in order

Fate Ia Fate Limma

Fate Imin Fate Min

Fate Ussu Fate Ash

Then everyone else,

Anu and Aruru are to bring up the rear of these procession.

******

Then the music begins

Suddenly I am Limma, and I am back in the ancient land of Sumer. I feel the sun warm me and the sand hot between my toes.

I see the temple and outside I see The Eternal City of Uruk.

I start my journey.

    One line from this really stood outโ€ฆโ€™from then on, they would be the temple doorsโ€ฆโ€™. It can be quite disconcerting, as well as beautiful, when that inner change happensโ€ฆ

    Mind you, Stu looks good in that skirt ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Why not build (y)our own cosmology?
