Title GRL_SIPAPU_PAGE11
Description Baker Sipapu 11 After Rain had gone that afternoon, Bob got up and moved over to the Weaver and sat down near her. If desire was the key, he had plenty of that; he desperately needed to know what was going on. It took several sessions, but finally he learned that this was a group set up to come out through the sipapu and inhabit the earth, as he had decided. This was the linking year, when they were raising and storing crops to last them until they could get settled. They were building and storing in the caves along the ledge north of this one, which they did use for ceremonial purposes. He learned, also, that Rain was the beloved daughter of the Supreme Spirit, and only because of that, she was allowed to be of the world for just this summer. When Bob asked if she was coming out with the clan, the Weaver assured him that she was not, her father would never let her leave the Spirit World. Then the Weaver closed her mind and Bob had to be content. If Rain could not come out, then how was he going to get to go through the sipapu and be with her? It tool; a day or two for him to get the Weaver to talk to him again, she seemed to be afraid to say much, but at last he asked her right out if he could go back through the sipapu. She was silent a moment, and he thought he had lost her again. "With Faith, anything is possible," she finally murmured . "Anything is possible?" Bob was caught by the idea.
