Under the same light

to break the spell

This can be said of the elder
This is a human who has become whole
More truly is every day becoming whole
So this one not intruding on the world
Begins for us to break the spell of separation

Deathly-serious play

Eldering is deathly-serious play, one last chance to get life right, a fun mixture of depth, lightness, and light. Hopeful grieving, teaching by hearing, throwing off masks and make-up, coloring outside lines, catching your death by the tail—or tale, dancing freely and feelingly in the thunderstorm, spinning largely!
