To bare our souls is all we ask, to give all we have to life and the beings surrounding us. Here the nature spirits are intense and we appreciate them, make offerings to them - these nature spirits who call us here - sealing our fate with each other, celebrating our love.
Thy fate is the common fate of all; Into each life some rain must fall.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
