My name is not Ishmael. Still, I went down to the Sea. A child I was not.
Born in 1943, it was not til 30 years had passed did I arrive at Mindi Pier in Panama.
Driven? Perhaps. Still, one follows the thread they've been tied to at birth. This, even if one does not know such a thread exists. I think.
My thread lead me to the Mountain, thence the Gate.
One final note before you move on...it has just occured to me that these paintings are personifications. Might be good to keep that in mind.

Warriors of Wounded Knee"At Samhain (which corresponds to modern Halloween), time lost all meaning and the past, present, and future were one. The dead, and the denizens of the Other World, walked among the living. It was a time of fairies, ghosts, demons, and witches. Winter itself was the Season of Ghosts, and Samhain is the night of their release from the Underworld."
