On one hand, singular and solitary, a skeletal body, jutting into the desert silence, devoid of all attachment and belonging.
On the other hand, attached to the other letters, an instrument of speech and writing, with different and varied powers: poetic power, shamanistic and healing power, etc... An abstract-formal power. Its relations linked to the four elements Fire - Earth - Water - Air.
Now, it is from these contradictions that the approach will take strength.
