On Storytelling, Trails and Dragons
Logbook, Frits Ahlefeldt, June 2015
That little dragon got me thinking, as I colored the drawing up… I often hear trails described as something to be conquered, like if the hikers are setting out, in the best Tolkien, Hobbit way, to meet the unknown out there, beyond the limits of the known world, to face the dragons
And when I hear and read the descriptions from hikers it really do look like a lot are setting out to do just that – But I think maybe the little dragon got a point. Hikers will have to conquer themselves – not the trails, to really make it.
If you just conquer the trail – maybe you miss the point
