Epigraph: For I send east and I send west,
And I send as far as my will may flee,
By dawn and dusk and the drinking rain,
And syne my sendings return to me.
They come wi' news o' the groaning earth,
They come wi' news o' the roaring sea,
Wi' my word of spirit ghost and flesh,
And man, that's mazed among the three. - Rudyard Kipling
