Blood

Jan 30

Blood is serious, blood is death and life. Blood is your name, it is who you are. Blood is your family, your clan your people. Blood when written is a pact, sacred or profane, which no one may break once they have committed. When blood is bad, it is a terrible curse, turning men against each other in rounds that end with death.

Blood is hot, it presses against our flesh. Blood flows throughout us, mostly water, laced with iron and salt. Blood comes into us as water, where it is mixed with other elements we have ingested. All blood was once water, and all blood will be water again. Blood and water is among the most ancient of laws which bind man and god together. And when we love, we mix our blood together.
