“… she tried to avoid his gaze but he held her steady and would not look away, Finally her eyes spoke to him. Her eyes said, Words are too weak, too small, they are always too small, even the purest and most simple phrases fail. Her eyes said, Look at who you are, you were asleep when I met you, but now you’re awake, so stay awake. I did not need you and I did not want you and yet here you are, awake in my body and in my heart.”
Toby Barlow, Babayaga

There are so many versions of the Baba Yaga story. I love the quote above, but also adore the version in the book called “Women who run with wolves.”
