“The Great Stories are the ones you have heard and want to hear again. The ones you can enter anywhere and inhabit comfortably… You know how they end, yet you listen as though you don’t. In the way that although you know that one day you will die, you live as though you won’t. In the Great Stories you know who lives, who dies, who finds love, who doesn’t. And yet you want to know again.”
– Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things
Exploring the Great Stories, and trying to find my place in them.
Spoiler warnings: within you will find Christianity (which may not be what you think it is), modern Druidry (which may not be as old as you think it is), polytheism with a Gaelic twist (which may not be as Irish as you think as is), a whole lot of modern story (which may be much more consequential than you think it is), and all that lies between. Here is the Wood between the Worlds, lit by Lampposts, and other Light.
“…all that lies between the lamp-post and the great castle of Cair Paravel…”
– CS Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
