«Each thought poured out to others with an intention illuminates, sometimes that light is like the lightning that allows a glimpse of the landscape for an instant, at other times it becomes the torch inside a cave that breaks through leaving darkness behind, other occasions it is the bonfire where humans gather to share and reflect, what is yours, how many more do you know? «
The somewhat nervous women were wondering that afternoon if any of them had managed to learn through Dayami what the men who were waiting hungry thought of them, but no, there was no way they were going to be given anything in advance that they need to discover.

Finally, Tonalli approached Zila who with his flushed face realized immediately that she had held his hand waiting for the shameful misunderstanding to be resolved and they both smiled discovering that magic gave them light on the encouraging path.
Erandi at that moment pointed out:
