the runes of the gatekeeper's daughter

Alchemy is an ancient practice shrouded in mystery and secrecy. Its practitioners mainly sought to turn lead into gold, a quest that has captured the imaginations of people for thousands of years.

Alchemy: A seemingly magical transformation.  There was a very strong spiritual component involved – a belief in the connection of all things;  that there was a formula akin to Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, and like the embodiment of the Holy Grail, ultimately an enlightenment of the soul.

There’s courage involved if you want

to become truth.  

 We alchemists look for talent that

can heat up and change.  Lukewarm won’t do.

Halfhearted holding back,

well-enough getting by?  Not here.-Rumi
