One day I was resting between tasks and M’Lady was speaking about one of her closest friends, one we nick name “The Story Teller” and rightfully so: it really doesn’t matter what the woman has been up to, the experience (no matter how mundane) becomes a great epic adventure in the telling. A phone call or a chat over coffee in the morning will launch us into a trek across the country.
She spoke of how as a girl her best friend would launch into a story, she would climb into her lap, close her eyes and listen.
Later I was at my carving bench again, looking over a rough sketch of what I had envisioned of her story and thus I began to carve. Using the imagery of a woman telling her tale I set her audience in her lap: the story enveloping her, entangling her into the tale; becoming a part of it.
The Story Teller Amulet is for the bards, the story tellers, those with the gift of the gab, teachers of lore, those who encourage us to become our own heroes by being so themselves. It is for those who love tales of tails and know the value of a great story.
