The Philosopher – Introduction

D717B53D-0172-406C-910F-6FCE67175515Once upon a time in the village of South Port on the Isle of Havnor in the island archipelago of EarthSea there lived a philosopher. His castle was in the air with his thoughts while his kingdom was in his heart. He was a good, generous and just man. Although he had many who loved him, by his own choice he lived alone for most of his years. The Philosopher only longed for one thing. He asked the sun, the moon and the stars to send him a partner before he died. He would walk everyday along the cobbled stone streets and through the fields and forests of his kingdom continuing to search for his desire for truth and a last true love. He searched every book for truth and the eyes of every face he saw for love. It was this dream which fueled his life as much as philosophy, music and poetry.

Dedication: This story is in the realm of science fiction and fantasy due to the first fantasy series I read and fell in love with, the EarthSea series by Ursula K Le Guin. Later I read J R R Tolkien and CS Lewis but Le Guin was the first. She was the one who instilled in me a love of dragons.

Thank you Ursula. This story is dedicated to you. My continuation of the tale you created.
