Voyageur Storytelling: Tetrads, Œvirsagas, and Politico-Literary Narration
Thursday, January 23rd, 2020

Welcome to the Opening Scroll of Voyageur Storytelling's Web Site


ON JANUARY 16TH, EXACTLY 100 YEARS AFTER STEPHEN LEACOCK'S BOOK,

WE PUBLISHED OUR STARTLING NEW RENDITION OF

THE UNSOLVED RIDDLE OF SOCIAL JUSTICE

WHICH YOU CAN STUDY IN THE PICTOVERBICON BELOW.



We are now working on amplification of the Tetrads woven into the new Riddle:


The Imperative Tetrad:

God + Person + People + Nature

The Effective (Leacock) Tetrad:

Knowledge + Imagination + Compassion + Humour

The Illuminative Tetrad:

Bright + Beautiful + Wise + Wonderful

The Active Tetrad:

Engage + Nurture + Share + Reconcile

The Progressive Tetrad:

Thoughtfully + Creatively + Carefully + Bravely


These last four constitute an integrated Quadrupad, that is, an interwoven matrix or tissage of four Tetrads taking place within:


The Narrative Tetrad (the "Œvirsagas"):

Here + Now + Then + When

which in Canadian experience is:

Aboriginal + National + Political + Urbanismal


The Pilgrim Path we believe we must follow, as commanded by the Imperative Tetrad, leading we trust from the Purplekcities, through the Specificities, to the Sagacities, in stages of Agitation, Gravitation, Levitation, and Elevation, is

Labyrinthine.


We expect to be occupied for some time making sense of all this, which remains a work in progress growing from our new book, called

THE MARRIAGE OF SOCIAL JUSTICE WITH UNSOLVED RIDDLES

offically released also on January 16th,

and its prequel

THE UNSOLVED RIDDLE(S) OF STEPHEN LEACOCK

published last year

For the time being they are what they are, like Stephen Leacock.


A Web Site in Search of a Purpose

If it cannot discover one, it will disappear at the end of this year

This site has existed since 2001.

From origin until 2016 it primarily supported Country Supper Storytelling Concerts.

In 2017 it supported the Stephen Leacock "My Discovery of the West" Re-Tour.

In 2018 it rested.

In 2019 it supported the three Leacock Anniversaries: LEACOCK~150~100~75.

In 2020 it will try to learn to support 2020''s New Project, gradually emerging.

See last week's pictoverbicon, above.
