Granda says important events gather storms to them as terns gather mosses to nest in. The day after our village herbwoman left her lover to return to her mother’s village — some swear she turned into a bird and flew, but how would she have carried her magic books? — we had the biggest storm I had yet seen. A year later we had another such, bigger maybe, and a happening even more important came just after.
And after a good storm strange things sometimes wash up from the sea. The younger folk of Cobbleshore — and sometimes the adults, too, if there isn’t too much work to be done — walk the coast to see what’s to be found. My brother Torin had claimed Sandbanks to be our own looking place.
