crow and weasle

Samhain night, and I was curled up reaching hard to connect with an avatar of my own heart; reading ‘Crow and Weasel’ by Barry Lopez.

“I would ask you to remember only this one thing,” said Badger. “The stories people tell have a way of taking care of them. If stories come to you, care for them. And learn to give them away where they are needed. Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive. That is why we put these stories in each others memory. This is how people care for themselves."

I was also reduced to tears when Mouse tells them “Without a dream, people do not know what to do with their lives.”

Look Chris – both parts of my myth structure in the same place!
