Notes from Egypt

I sailed down the Nile.

And flew over the Valley of the Kings and Queens.

It looks like you’re taking pictures of your home, she said.

Then again, the first dream could have come from a woman,
though she would behave,
I suppose, much the same way
Moving off by herself to be alone near water,

except that the curve of her shoulders
and the tilt of her downcast head
would make her appear to be terribly alone,
and if you were to notice this,

You might have gone down as the first person
to ever fall in love with the sadness of another.

In the silence of the material senses lies the key to the unveiling of wisdom. He who talks does not know; he who knows does not talk. The highest knowledge is unutterable, for it exists as an entity in planes which transcend all material words or symbols.

Doreal, The Emerald Tablets

Water always knows the way, even if the journey appears winding.

Did Isis know the tears of her grief would bless the world with the Nile?

Your feelings are always there to guide you, even if they don’t make sense or seem to align with your goal. Allow them to flow.
