There are two definitions that I care about equally: "legend" as a story that puts you into an imaginative trance, that feeling of a warm crackling fire, an gorgeous voice telling you over the fire, about a time when___ or someting to that effect. Then there's the legend next to a map or picture, deciphering the symbols, scale, and colors used to symbolize routes and destinations.
Every word on this site has multiple meanings. That is the elegance that I seek.
The legends written above are speculative fictions that I am constantly refining, to make them more nad more real: using them to learn about what processes would help them come along, what stands in their way, etc. Stories that I can come back to and create, as a creator, and pass up rather than down - pass up in the sense that, I want the legend to grow in truth, rather than in mystery or intrigue—I want more and more people to see their place in it, rather than distance themselves from it. It is a legend FOR tomorrow, something that we are working towards, which requires many people to start building the same legend. I consider these my seedbank of legends wherein we play all the characters. These are not tales of heroes, either. These are tales of ecosystems that rise as a whole.
