Today Roland is back with us to finish his discussion on Myth melding and how the dreaming runs through The Bear With Two Shadows, an e-book. Most days you can find Roland at his blog, Writing In The Crosshairs. Take it away Roland.
Hi, Everyone :
Nancy has graciously allowed me to slip in through the back door of her cyber domain to talk a bit about my Native American Lord of the Rings, THE BEAR WITH TWO SHADOWS.
THE MELD OF THE WORLD’S MYTHOLOGIES –
The Australian aboriginal aspect of the Dreaming flows into my novel, shaping the universal Great Myth of Hibbs’ adventures. Why universal? Which of us does not dream?
Hibbs’ adventures in the Dreaming, the creation time, interconnects all the world’s myths, turning the landscape of the entire world into a living body. The Lakota see the world as one large web of life, each strand vibrating to the beating of the heart next to it.
THE MYTH OF THE BEAR WITH TWO SHADOWS
Myths are not fixed truths.
Rather they are ever-winding, ever-shifting paths to misty glimpses of possible answers to questions. And each wanderer down those paths asks different questions, so their eyes and hearts whisper different answers.
Sometimes those eyes are at odds with the hearts. And considering the two shadows we share with Hibbs, should not this be so?
Thank you for letting me draw back the curtain a bit for you to peek into the myths which live in THE BEAR WITH TWO SHADOWS.
Thank you, Roland, for an interesting look at the myths you followed for the creation of your book.
