Camino de Santiago

Over thousands of years people had walked this route in penance for their transgressions. But since the start of the tenth epoch, this walk had linked not only with St James, but with the survival of humanity. The ninth epoch had seen all the people of earth rise up against the Force and its leader Dacia. Few had given humanity any chance of winning their freedom, for earth’s water was the most valuable resource in the universe. Many had asked why human beings should have control over the earth’s water after the way they had squandered the pristine waters of the oceans.

    Dacia’s in control? Now I know who to blame

    1. Michael Humphris

      Thank you Neil At present Dacia seems to be at the core of all bad things

  2. Courtney Wright

    We don’t take very good care of our earth do we? Maybe Dacia should be in control?? Wait… maybe not!!!
    Nicely done! 😉

    Indeed why should we have control of the water, all we ever seem to do is find new ways to pollute it.

      Thank you Michael, Earths water has a powerful story to tell I suspect.

    Dear Michael,

    Why indeed should humans have control? Not good stewards of the earth, are we? Nicely done.

      Thank you Rochelle, I suspect that in the future earths water will have a powerful story to relate.

    What an epic story from a picture of patched boots! One little grammatical fix–should be earth’s water. Without the apostrophe, it’s just plural–as in more than one earth. Or maybe that’s what you intended 🙂

    1. Michael Humphris

      Thank you granonine, grammar has always been my downfall.

    A sermon from a pair of battered boots – well done!

    1. Michael Humphris

      Thank you Liz, I hope that it was not to much of a sermon. Mike

    Oh, I like this. We humans don’t really deserve what earth has given us.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Thank you for your feedback Alicia, I suspect that earth’s oceans could tell many stories

  10. Nan Falkner

    Well, you have to admit that she is right. Great story! Nicely written!

    1. Michael Humphris

      Thank you Nan

    It’s earth’s water and earth’s people, so it is theirs. But they need to learn to have more respect. What an imaginative story, Michael.
