The Debts We Owe to the Dead

When I pay homage to the ancestors, I add the names of practitioners of magic whom I have known but are no longer among the living.

Most of them got that way because they did some inadvisable magic— in my estimation, at least.

One of the debts we owe to the dead is not to make their mistakes. Otherwise, their sacrifices will have been entirely in vain.
