For many paths of the Craft the elements are the core or center of focus for the directional provinces. This in my opinion is unfortunate since these provinces are more then the wind that blows but the entire landscape. The elements are important but so are the rest of the directional associations. If we are to truly learn this language of symbols then we must learn to speak with more then one word. When we have been immersed in the river of tongues then our art permeates with the points of the realms and provinces.
