"...Edh would stray off by herself, over the heath till her moodiness blew from her. Commonly she ended by the sea, and there might well sit, lost in the sight, until shadows and breeze plucked at her sleeve to say she had better go home."
-Poul Anderson, Time Patrol (New York, 2006), p. 583.
"...[Dahut] would keep motionless for an hour or more, listening to a shell or the surf or the wind, staring out over the deeps where seals and dolphins played, gulls and cormorants winged, ships and great whales passed by." (Gallicenae, p. 211)
Both commune with nature and its gods. Edh will become the prophetess of a sea goddess. Dahut, we know, has communicated with her dead mother who has returned as a seal. Dahut listens to shells, surf and wind and stares at the deeps. She is one with the Triad of Ys Who speak to her through the sea sounds she hears. She will enter that sea and be transformed.
