homeward bound





The mouth. Seek nourishment. Good fortune.

The Lines (base to top)

Can't tell much from tortoiseshells
Fortunetellers grind their teeth
Teeth continue getting ground
Teeth continue getting ground
All the way down to the bone
Painless extraction these days


Mountain over thunder. Stillness over energy.

The hexagram shows an open mouth. Not all nourishment is of the body.
