Brothers Campfire The Man With The Potter’s Wheel-An Ongoing Tale Chapter 119

Brother arrived on a grisly scene. Lord Rainport and his horse had been devoured by pequin.

If you showed the slightest amount of fear, they would prey on you. They could sense it. 

There was no sign of the Man with the Shepherd’s Crook. Hastily, he returned to Northwich. His sheep were gone. He checked the old building where he held services and knocked on the door of the school.  A man with a cane was walking, daughter around his arm.

He asked them of his whereabouts.

Excitedly, he told Brother about his arm. When Brother was able to redirect, he asked again.

“Oh, he took his bride and his sheep away in the night. He said not to worry, he would be back. He left you a blanket by the Campfire. He called it a comforter of all things.” 

It was cold and late. He built a fire and hunkered down. The blanket was embroidered with words he did not understand. 

This would be an all nighter. He made the coffee extra strong. 

The donkey did not bray and the goose was quiet.  A tall, thin, balding man walked to the fire with a woodsman’s gait.

“Hello, I am a potter and I would like to settle here.”

Brother said, “Why not! Would you like some coffee? 

The potter asked, “Is it community coffee?”

Brother smiled. 

“Oh yes! Everyone is welcome to a cup!”

Dark, Bitter. Coffee

    I am new to your storytelling, but quite intrigued by it… I may have missed the point entirely here, but I am wondering if this “community coffee” is anything like the yerba maté tradition of South America? Whenever a guest comes to visit, it is a warming social gesture to pass the maté around the room to each person—all sharing from the same cup!!! ❤️

      Oh wow! That is neat! First of all, welcome to the campfire! (Pours you a cup of coffee!) You can get into the story wherever you like!

      Building community is important to me. I like to bring everyone I can together. The man with the Potter’s wheel is a representation of spiritual leadership. His reference to coffee is a brand name and Brother’s reference is to everyone being welcome.

      I was not aware of the Yerba Mate tradition and am excited that there are independent paralells here.

      Thank you for stopping by! I hope you become a regular visitor, and then a friend! I am quite invested on the ongoing tale, and am thankful for the questions!
