He stood apart from the pyre and made his prayer to the two winds Boreas and Zephryos Zephyrus , north wind and west, and promised them splendid offerings, and much outpouring from a golden goblet entreated them to come, so that the bodies might with best speed burn in the fire and the timber burst into flame. And Iris, hearing his prayer, went swiftly as messenger to the Winds for him. Now the Winds assembled within the house of storm-blowing Zephyros were taking part in a feast, and Iris paused in her running and stood on the stone doorsill; but they, when their eyes saw her, sprang to their feet, and each one asked her to sit beside them.

A good many visits to our marriage counselor and prayer has brought us close, but I find myself knowing that in the golden years certainly one of us will be gone before the other…maybe in full body or maybe just in mind.
