Tentacles grew out of blue, yellow and green stars when Jorden was created.
They all had their different gifts and properties which were tangled into the creation of this mysterious, beautiful, mist filled planet.
Sparkles of love, joy and music showered down from the velvety heavens.
Bundles of warmth, compactness and diversity swirled around her – encompassing her with their rays.
From inside the core the tentacles started infusing wisdom, search and silence.
And in between, inside and surrounding all of this the whispers of the Great Mystery were planted.
Once completed – although completed is a word which does not do justice as She is bustling with movement, adventure and cocooning on all planes, continuously – the stars withdrew.

There was a small, silver blue lake at the bottom of a steep hill. To one side of it the majestic mountains of Theo were towering towards the glimmering heights, being reflected in the water.
On one side of the lake lay a forest of old oak trees and young willows, all flowing with the winds. Sometimes you could hear a faint laughter coming out of the depths of the woods.
On the other side, a sea of green and flowers in all shades of blue, moss and pink were spreading towards the horizon of Eternity.
