Another – far away – prefers to track steadily through wide landscapes like flowing water. He passes through the world and sees and hears a lot. A third one likes nothing better than to be everywhere at once, like the air. He appears quite unexpectedly. And occasionally we might encounter a heedful giant with his attention turned towards the earth who will first consider where he is needed and then attempts carefully to get there. [more]
