“The Puppy Run”

During my time at the Academy, one of my greatest joys was running through the forest with the wolf-hounds Mesoon and Tonkay, shadow-furred allies who were my close friends and confidants.

We would play a game we called the ‘Puppy Run’, where we’d discover an endless training ground of earth connection provided by the deva of the mountain

There was something so primal about my sojourns into the faerie woods behind the Academy.  Here, I would leap from rock to rock, feeling the angles and the gravities of the movement as I ran and rushed about with the wolfhounds.  I would play games with the deva, envisioning that the ground was lava, and I could only step upon the rocks or on a stick (but only for a moment before it sank into the lava), exploring my own playground of relationship.

It was a deeply shamanic experience.  One where the intelligences of the deva played out in graduated levels of difficulty, transmitting ideas to me about how I could work with the land in any number of ways, where I danced in a sacred dialogue with the elements of the world.

There was a significance to the mountaintop in the human world as well, for a great trail moved through it from settlers of the past.  There were places, locations closer to the trail itself where I would find bits of metal, rusted chunks of ancient machineries and the lingering voices of travelers long-since departed.
