I am spending my time by the river that flows towards the Bridal Veil Falls. I wanted to spend some time listening to the radio, so I brought with me the walkman I had bought to record my courses at the conservatory. However, I can’t listen to the radio because I broke my headphones.

Instead, I am sitting and writing on paper words of prayer for Wally (of whom I am secretly thinking) to fulfill his destiny. I throw the pieces of papers into the river, and am following them as they float down the stream. I feel relieved when the paper disappears in the waterfalls.

The time I spent in Niagara Falls was the beginning of what I later become aware of as my divine calling – cleansing of the spirits trapped in the human world through its tragic history. At the time, I did not realize I would come in touch with souls of prostitutes of Japanese descent who had died on the territory of Canada in humiliation and sorrow, and who had not yet been able to achieve Buddhahood and rest in peace. I just prayed for Wally’s safety, happiness and wellbeing.

Gould died on the 4th of October at half past eleven in the morning. While I was praying by the falls, his presence quietly ceased to grace this world.

It is the 4th of October. I am at my usual place at the Bridal Vail Falls. My surrounding is swiftly turning purple. This is no ordinary sunset.

The change from the evening to the night happening before me is aptly depicted in the book “When the Sky is Like Lace” by Barbara Cooney, an illustrator and writer of children’s picture books.

I hear some mathematicians observe colours in figures. They also say Gould was interested in numerology. I wonder if Gould could feel the energy in figures.

When it comes to colours of figures, number 9 is purple for me. Number “9” gives hints about invisible things, about religion, art, philosophy, about psyche and workings of our brain.

Maybe, as Gould’s soul was departing North America, it left us a present in the form of dying the scenery from soft lavender to deep purple. Or maybe, it was the nature reflecting the colours of the gods who came to welcome Gould’s soul.

Surrounded by the lavender colour, I am returning to the guesthouse. The intensity of purple colour is increasing by the minute. Purple air is pressing in through the window, as if it wants to colour my room as well. In this crescendo of colours, the purple even comes to be reflected in my mirror.

I still can’t listen to the radio, so I sit in my room and, this time, I pray for myself. “Please, god, take me back to Toronto somehow. Toronto is everything for the musician in me. Please, please, let me study in Toronto.”
