Session 13 (18/9 – 8.29 a.m.):

the girls were playing some kind of game tossing a large leather ball to and fro their young bodies sweating and gleaming in the sun tela and sabra sat down in the shade wait here their guide said

he disappeared into the shadowy grove

the girls were chanting each one a new line as the ball reached her one of them a little shorter than the rest was obviously having difficult with the responses hanging onto the ball longer than she should as her lips worked


a commanding voice rang out

They’re practicing for when they play in earnest, for their lives
– S. Baring Gould
