"There are people whose lives are but a ripple in the water. Invisible, inaudible, unreal, they leave no print in the sandy desert of humankind. We do not know whence they came into our midst, and when they depart, we know not why or where they have gone. While the gods walked the earth, that is how we recognized them. When they left us, of all their powers the only legacy they left behind was the ability to live, but not to be.
Their being is Water. Water is their Element. It is in water that their nature and their fate reside."
Borislav Pekic, New Jerusalem
