Hello fellow World-Walkers! I’ve been off on a grand adventure the past couple of weeks and I’m only now returning to civilization. I also learned there are places on Erde where my ship cannot go. That was new and different.
Near the border of the Yoremba and Unhur’ahn, where the desert meets the mountains, is a high plateau. You can’t get there unless you climb, or have wings. I tried. I tried really hard because it’s a long climb. Had I realized my ship would not take me to the plateau directly I’d have planned better. But I made it! And because I made the climb I was also made welcome by the most diverse, wonderful, chaotic, terrifying group of shape-changers I’ve ever met. (And some of my family are shape-changers.) I will not share the details of our celebration: that was private (if you can call a gathering of a couple thousand people “private”). But I will tell you a little about the plateau, and the well known as the Bright Mother’s Fountain. <— Click the link!
May the Bright Mother bless you as well, and warm you in your travels!
