“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.”
-T.E. Lawrence [1888-1935]
Change is coming. How many times have we heard those words before, in the kin community? It is a common prophecy, stated by both the newly awakened and those who have been awakened for some time. Often it is interpreted to mean that magic is coming back. Sometimes it is interpreted to mean that a magical war is coming. Sometimes it’s just interpreted to mean that those of us who came from Elsewhere will be going Home. But always, those words are spoken in one form or another. Change is coming.
This time those words are right.
