LADY OF THE LOCH
Though she is wearing away, she appears solid. I wondered what that meant. And then, well, not Nepo, but someone Nepo quoted (see how tangled this web is?):
With each passing (and passage), there is a further wearing away of the layers or coverings that obscure our essential selves. And so, as we say "goodbye" again and again, we feel thinner, narrower, more naked, more transparent, more vulnerable in a palpable, holy way" - ELESA COMMERSE (as quoted in Mark Nepo's Things That Join the Sea and Sky)
Just like that, I can see glimpses of her essential self revealed under the waters of the loch. Not quite unlocked, but less obscured. And so are we, dear reader, with passing and passage, more vulnerable in holy ways.

Lynda! Thank you. I wish I could say I planned these....but they just decide what to be! This one had some very strong ideas. :)

Emerging from the deep, intense in thought! Watching and not revealing her secrets!
