VERSO / mass: magic

All organic matter containing carbon was produced originally in stars, We are a way for the universe to know itself. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return. And we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We’re made of star stuff.
––Carl Sagan

Welcome to the New Year. Today is ripe, as are we. The sacred is all around us.

All that you touch
You Change.

All that you Change
Changes you.

The only lasting truth
is Change.

is Change.

––Octavia E. Butler

Then we are magicians.

Then we imbue, we ache, we yearn, we cast, we surrender. Ashe.
