One of several Blessings written in the book:
"On the day when the weight burdens your shoulders and you stumble, may the clay dance to bring you balance.
And when your eyes freeze behind the grey window and the ghost of loss gets in to you, may a flock of colours, indigo, red, green and azure blue, come to awaken in you a meadow of delight.
And when the canvas frays in the curach of thought and a stain of ocean blackens beneath you, may there come across the waters a path of yellow moonlight to bring you safely home.
May the nourishment of the Earth be yours; May the clarity of Light be yours; May the fluency of the Ocean be yours; May the protection of the Ancestors be yours; and, so may a slow wind wrap these words of Love around you, an invisible cloak to mind your life."
