hard by a great forest


“Step across the boundary and the trespass of story will begin. The forest takes a deep breath and through its whispering leaves an incipient adventure unfurls. The quest. In the lull — not the drowsy lull of a lullaby but the sotto voce of a woodland clearing, scented with story as it is with with wild garlic — this is the moment of beginning, the pause on the threshold before the journey. So many tales begin here, hard by a great forest….” Jay Griffiths
