Description Baker Sipapu 22 thing when he bounced through the bushy cedar tree instead of splatting on the hard ground. Somehow, death was a general thing to him; oddly he did not even think of dying by his own hand. Such a thought would have filled him with an abhorrence that the whole philosophy would have tumbled down. He was convinced by his experience with the after effects of watching the dance, that unless he divested himself of his earthly humaness, his mortality, he could never attain the level of Rain, even if he did go through the sipapu with her. He carefully reviewed what the Medicine Man had told him, and it seemed that there was a slim chance that he could purify himself with prayer and meditation, and he was as ready as he ever would be to give it. a try. He turned to tell Rain that tomorrow he would go into the mountains alone and make himself worthy of her, but she had gone; he had not even known when she left.
