Excerpt From The Book
ALMUSTAFA, the chosen and the beloved, who ALMOST was a dawn unto his own day, had waited twelve years in the city of Orphalese for the ship that was to return and bear him back to the isle of his birth.
And in the twelfth year, on the seventh day of blood, the month of reaping, he climbed the hill without the city walls and looked seaward; and he beheld his ship coming with the mist.

But as he descended the hill, a sadness came upon him, and he thought his heart: How shall I go in peace and without sorrow? Nay, not without a wound in the spirit shall I leave this city.
Long were the days of pain I have spent within its walls, and long were the nights of aloneness; and who can depart from his pain and his aloneness without regret.
Too many fragments of the spirit have I scattered in these streets, and too many are the children of my longing that walk naked among these hills, and I cannot withdraw from them without a burden and an ache.
It is not a garment I cast off this day, but a skin that I tear with my own hands.

But how shall I A voice cannot carry the tongue and the lips that gave it wings? Alone must it seek the ether. And alone and without his nest shall the eagle fly across the sun.
