Just about all of my life has been a solo journey. But now I will be journeying with a fellow traveler. First, the European Godwriting Tour and then a Oneness Journey across the U.S. and down into South America, and winding up in Argentina.
And now it's happening. Forty years late, to be sure, but it is happening, and I do feel like I'm living in a fairy tale. Come November, when Heaven Admin will be picking me up, I wouldn't be astonished if he appeared on a white horse!
Okay, so I exaggerate!
This morning I was almost going to write about A Story Like the Wind by Laurens Van der Post. This is another book I have ready to take on the Oneness Journey. This sensitive book is about life in Africa, probably in the 1920's or so. There is a quote at the front of this book from a bushman who was imprisoned. I paraphrase this quote because the book is packed away.
"More than anything," this little bushman said, "I miss story. More than food, I have to have story to live."
And that's how I feel. Story is so vital to me.
As it happens, I just finished rereading Hans Christian Anderson's Fairy Tales! And how disappointed I was when I had turned the last page.
