The great sea frees me, moves me, as a strong wind carries a weed. Earth and her strong winds move me, take me away; and my soul is swept up in joy. Uvavnuk, female Inuit shaman, ca. 1900s (translated by Jane Hirshfield, blue and white, Yuko Hosaka)
A heraldic monster of myth, the Yale was first spoken of by Pliny the Elder; it was an antelope-like beast about the size of a horse with tusks, long horns, and the tail of a lion or goat. Apparently it enjoyed wallowing in water. In battle, both horns could be used at once to meet aggression from any direction.
