This is the last song of Atheist Advent 2010: Lord of Misrule.
I had in mind the legend of the temporary king, appointed for the holiday season, who inverts the relationship between masters and servants. And I had in mind that for the coming year, the Lord of Misrule might be of a mind to stick around, to see whether the puppets over which he presides in winter might carry the pageant onwards.
And this is the end of Atheist Advent 2010. I am so grateful to you for tuning in. I might carry this idea on in future, maybe with a focus on the audio files and not doing so much video. I might write a few reflections on the process in a week or so, once I’ve collected my thoughts. It’s been valuable for me; and once or twice I felt that a song was demanding to be expressed through me, rather than me having to cobble it together out of mortal ideas. But I could have done nothing without the idea that you were listening.
I hear a storm is about to hit in Vermont.
Thanks again for tuning in.
