Re-Post: To the AFA, The Troth, and the Odinic Rite

Posted: December 17, 2013 in Musings, Stories

Atop my tower of tales, an admittedly short one, I heard this plea from a fellow storyteller: their Yule wish that this story make the rounds of the Internet by the time of the Solstice.

While I cannot personally grant that wish, I will give what part I can. It’s a short one, and as part of the bardic tradition, makes its point with imagination rather than reason. This is as it should, for as any skald can tell you, no hearts are swayed by rational debate — or even irrational ones. We live and die by the stories we tell and believe in. Blame the lame stories, rather than the believers, for the sorry state of the world we live in. It’s time for better stories, and perhaps this is a start.

Link to that story: To the AFA, The Troth, and the Odinic Rite.

Yuletide Blessings to you and yours,
-Lofn’s Bard

      You’re very welcome. I don’t necessarily agree with the views you post about, but that’s exactly the point here. Stories convey these in a different way. You can critique a story’s style, agree or not with its characters, but you can’t argue with a story. It stands on its own with its vision. When it’s relevant to people’s lives and brings them more meaning, they share it. When I write one, I always hope it brings at least one person a little healing. I encourage you to continue writing with that aim. 🙂
