Some of the religions – the ones with good memories – teach us that the world was spoken into being by its Makers. The storytellers have always been the great rememberers, carrying the world in troubled times like this one, murmuring sanity. Much hangs in the rafters and in the balance when humans take to speech to make their vows, their oaths, their threats, their prayers. It is a conjuring business we are entrusted with. And yet our corner of the world leaves its citizens to their wits to cobble together something like eloquence.
These few days together will be a time for learning something of the skill and the gift of well spokenness, the spell binding and spell breaking power of speech, the chanting in enchantment, the obligations of lucidity of the spirit and of the tongue that gather there in the second half of life.
