Time is our mentor, but one we grow beyond. As our bodies age, we weather, just as these stones do. Refined and redefined, our essence begins to show. Eventually, we may become so transparent that it’s clear we’re made of [E]arth that carries light; so transparent it’s clear we’re star-born. We’re deeply connected to Gaia, but also, as her children, a part of the far-flung worlds, the unity in which [S]he lives, moves, and has her being.
