These riddles come from a dark oasis, discovered centuries ago and buried deep in our memories. They smell of almonds, peaches, and myrrh. If your resolve is strong, if you are learnéd, they will lean in close; they will breathe on your neck, and they will whisper a secret into your ears. Drink from the grail. Coil a snake around your hand. Dress as your great grandmother. Consume the driest martini you can make. Close your eyes, and fall into the deepest sleep possible. You are a conduit. Speak with your ancestors. They talk in an unfamiliar language, but do not worry. Meaning goes beyond words. There is so much to learn, and you...
