The Hero’s Journey – The Call
It is the story of the protagonist leaving the safety and comfort of the known to journey to unknown lands, where he or she will invariably encounter dragons, trolls, wizards, wicked step-mothers, and all manner of perilous creatures.
Along the way, helpers arrive, companions for the journey, fellow travellers, the likes of which we would never meet but for the journey.
Gandalf: I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it’s very difficult to find anyone.
Bilbo: I should think so—in these parts! We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner! I can’t think what anybody sees in them …
But it seems dear friends we are all right now approaching unchartered territory due to the coronavirus and must face its global impact willing or not!
You’ll have a tale or two to tell when you come back, says Gandalf
Bilbo: You can promise that I’ll come back?”
Gandalf: No. And if you do, you will not be the same.
And so it goes with adventures doesn't it!
I wish you all well on your way send you much love.
