Each act will be decorated as an act of adoration and elevated with the intensity of purpose of a devotion. And we allow ourselves (as first person singular becomes first person plural) the space, or rather the confinement, necessary to prepare the ascent of a friend. That back door liberation is exactly the goal of this work. And they're all there – The Queen of the Moon, The Night Gardener, The Winter Hag.
Let us eschew the apparent inevitability of civilization's evolution that would relegate the world of magico-local thought to either one of the dual pasts of social evolution or childhood. Instead, accepting the very richest option of agency to fill those cultural vacancies. Too see the divinity in your lover's eyes. To see, and in seeing, create a brand new ritual of investiture for the culture hero at hand.
