“The light of a singular candle flickers, its sea-inspired aroma lingering. Silky tapestries dappled with soothing pastels move fluidly with the breeze from the fan. The air is humid and warm, full of anticipation and ancient memory. A bed, littered purposely with pillows of various sizes and thickness, awaits with freshly smoothed and laundered sheets. Like a protective lioness, low moans emanate in harmony with quietly sung chants, and the occasional sound of water being swirled by fingertips; the soundscape of birth.
