“So much of life in the SCA is centered around interactions between teachers and students. We all have so much to learn from each other, and none of us has all the answers. Though we all walk different paths on our quests, they all point to the same place. That place is made up of the very best qualities and talents within each of us. Learning to find that and forgive each other’s imperfections is what brings us all closer to our Dream.”
“Valdemar’s Song (The Baron and the Minstrel of the Hall),” by Efenwealt Wystle. Valdemar, in this case, is an SCA persona, not the Lackey novels.
This song…it’s beautiful, and inspiring, and oddly sad.
