homeward bound





Woman on top. Joy and arousal. Auspicious.

The Lines (base to top)

Damaged houses tumbling down
Hold the boy and lose the man
Hold the man and lose the boy
Pursuit can turn to ambush
Captives watch victors' banquet
Constrained ones must be watched


Lake over thunder. Hard beneath soft.

Stay firm.
