“No matter where you direct your gaze, all the stars are distant; If there are events before you and their observation, you will not be able to change anything, but neither will you ignore what affects your time. ”The Messenger
By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa
Just as science itself has proven, we can define by the way, that a tenacious observer like Erandi, I would not be wrong to understand it. Haste understood that Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli (Venus) would be present in her ritual where Tonacayototl himself, the Lord of Sustenance who inhabited the heavens, the earth, and the oceans, would do the same to encourage all the strength of Dayami.
Those luminous points high in the sky, thanks to the color of their light and intensity, would allow observers to know their identity. Every living moment of a star for us would be a memory and will remain constantly in those memorable nights, where its light and twinkling would be the most intense memory of something that ceased to be but never left.
The starry night did not erase the song of the crickets, total silence was not possible and life wore the most fascinating ornament of nature itself; In the midst of all this, the constant burst of memories in Erandi’s mind was distracted by perceiving the flow of water that lulled distant from her weary step.
Her heart stirred with joy, realizing at the same time that the fluid that she carried in her clay pot as an offering would once again vibrate and stir in the dancing waters of the river where the wings of multiple butterflies (Papalotl) sing.
The ritual would join the dizzying channel that empties into the sea; the priestess of Ometeotl arranged everything for the most imposing ritual of which only she, when summoning the Gods of her ancient tradition, would be a witness.
