Orleanna explains that a mother is special. She exists within the silences of the rhythms of the day. She shines but only special people can see it. She recalls once she was by the river and had seen the mythic creature. Like the silence and radiance of mothers, the illusive Okapi lingered by the river and Orleanna felt its glow.
