There is a bright light flickering out from far beyond that half-blue horizon[1], there is sea-breeze and the distant ache of a desert wind blowing[2].  We are here, and together we look hard into the landscape that we’ve built up around us – it is at once a broken television[3], a neon sign[4], an upward pan that leaves us in a cloudless sky[5]. We are here and we are lost: wood-wandering, leaving marks on trees for guides[6]. We’ve been masked and jungled, guided by spirits that are strong[7] but not stronger than each of us together. Oh! We have song and bell and bird as map, and with you and you lying next to me[8], it is certainly all we need: Long Live Our Love!
