Understanding Africa’s Parable Protection

God morning to one an all.

This morning after yesterday. I meditated on a sentence or word friend. You might think to yourself how can one word be a sentence.

I ask myself.

What is a family friend.

What is a real friend.

What is a true friend.

What is a secret friend.

What is a nice friend.

What is an old school friend.

Then my thoughts changed.

What is a crablouse mind friend.

A dirty mind friend.

A jealous friend.

A envious friend.

A black minded friend.

A deceitful friend.

A close closet peep the keyhole friend.

The one waiting for you to fall friend.

But the worst of them all is the fake fake fake one friend.

Have a good day one an all

My (Maasai King’s) parable for today.

***

OK I know its late but I was seriously hungry.  (They don’t like to eat their greens. “Off” paper Plates).

Myths are shaped in the form of parables or stories that are continually repeated within a culture through a specific medium. They embody people’s aspirations, hopes and ideals. Through times myths have taken on the form of narratives because story telling is the primary means through which mankind has communicated throughout time. This is how myths have shaped narratives or stories. They have been employed as media by which people try to get deep insight into (be it consciously or subconsciously) the complicated values, attitudes, and beliefs, of a society to its citizens. This leads to the conclusion that myths are imbedded, or can be found, in any types of narrative, regardless the media by which the stories are conveyed.
