the thickening of time

In the peace of the deep year, I wish you that peace, and all the hope of the new year to come. Although of course nothing is ever new, and the year is not really turning or changing, only growing yet another layer of light and memory ...





Nothing is ever new. Every heroine stands always in the residue of what has come before, and it never actually leaves her. Even in the depths of story, when she is facing the dragon in its dreadful lair, she brings with her childhood memories, and things her mother said, and scars from smaller dragons she's met along the way. So a beginning is really just a reforming, perhaps a deepening, of the long tale her soul is telling over and again.
