Ophelia Hedre is finishing her daunting ordeal. Now, protected from the winter's keen tooth, she can face the world with the satisfaction of achievement. She visits Wosni Galbraith (the curator of the Institute of Lyrian Archeology and Kabbalah scholar) who greets her thus: 'Blessings upon your knees, may you see the face of the king. Be aware than the Qabbala weaves connections between 'blessings'(ברכות) and 'knees'(ברכיים).' She is puzzled, and asks in reply 'Who is this guy called Wry Mo, who has a famous Irish Grandmother?' To this the sage again responds, 'Words are only letters, and letters are only words.'
