The Heroes Journey/A Song Man's Tale

March 6, 2017


Have you been traveling my friend? Come in out of the cold and warm yourself by the fire.  Eat, drink, rest, and I will tell you a story of a long journey from beginning to the end. We wander different paths, both in our bodies and our minds. Some of us lose heart and fall by the wayside, whilst others endure to realize there dreams and desires. This story's outcome is yet to be told.  


This is a long tale about a tall drink of water some folks call by the name of Stanton West.  A story loosely based on a life of a wandering folksinger and shared with you in his musings.  A story of an injured bird who takes flight, migrates, and wanders. At long last inspiration strikes and the troubadour realizes that everything he had been searching for, in far off distant lands, was inside him the whole time. Wherever he roamed, he was the only constant. Portraying the part of both the antagonist and protagonist. The heroes journey starts where it always does. Where all was well with the world.  Then calamity and chaos strike. They are called to adventure. There are hard times and turmoil, a Love Story, and a shining moment when everything comes to Light... and all is Good in the World.


The hero's journey, by definition, is the common template of a broad category of tales that involve a hero who goes on an adventure, and in a decisive crisis wins a victory, and then comes home changed or transformed.
