Okay, got it.
First thing this morning, I see this:
and the story of “Forest Games” falls into place. Imagine the Playground, with a whole mess of deer jumping about and being loud and happy. Off to the side, a stag is trying to sleep, but the noise keeps waking him and he doesn’t want to go anywhere else because he was there first! and if anyone should clear out it’s those crazy kids. Grump grump grump.
And just as he’s getting up and preparing to storm off and complain to the Twin Gods about all this ruckus, a fawn comes and he relents… and soon he’s jumping around the rocks like a kangaroo. LOVE THIS.
Music for “Forest Games” includes Andreas Vollenweider, “Enchanted Rocks” from the VOX album. Give it a listen.
Mr. Red, you grump, you have won my heart.
