The Forgotten Songs of Avalain – A World that should have been
|January 15, 2013||Posted by David Sable under Sable Blog, The Blog|
In Forgotten Songs of Avalain, Robert Cely spins a tale of a mythical yester-world. The first half of the story is set up helping us understand the Lethe and how they think and live. The second deals with two Lethe brothers and how the spiritual dynamics challenges the destiny of a people.
This story challenges the reader to explore the workings of a disordered history in our society and our own individual lives. We examine the fate of a significant defeat yet wonder if the defeat happened much earlier in the murky waters of pride, resentment and self-pity.
Where did it go wrong? Who are the Lethe today? How do they get back?
Perhaps the larger question for the sake of our society: can the root cause be addressed?
