  • Richard shared from Apart From Love by Uvi Poznansky
    My father just smiles, pouring me one cup of milk after another. “Well, now,” he says, once I have gulped down the last one. “Lets get some fresh air.”   And so, an hour or so later, the old man and I are down at Venice Beach, which is nearly deserted, barely a soul around.  There in front of us, closing in on an unclear horizon, is an autumn sun, reddening every ripple out there in the ocean, every little wrinkle here on the shore, and casting endless shadows, shadows made of vapor and dust, which seem to be flowing along, right over the surface.  We stand side by side.

    “The Vagabond once told me what that clover symbol means,” Garrett said, setting a hand on Kara’s shoulder. “He said it represents the four primary roads you can take in life: happiness, hatred, success, and failure.

Keep that with you and you will never be lost.
    Note: Kara learns the meaning of the Clover Symbol.

    Tread carefully, Vagabond. You are the last of us. Guard the Grimoire as you would your life, for one day everything you hold dear will depend upon what it tells you.   The lines in Kara’s forehead deepened, and she reread the short letter, holding her breath the whole time. A thought pulled on her mind, but her heart was beating too quickly for her to pay much attention to it at all.
