“In mythos and fairy tales, deities and spirits test the hearts of humans by showing up in robes, rags, silver sashes, or with muddy feet... as a man who cannot speak, or an animal who can. The great powers are testing to see if humans have yet learned to recognise the greatness of soul in all its varying forms.”
