I hadn’t heard the Beastmaster story. That one’s incredible! You can imagine it as a movie so easily, like Rambo with a big cat.

Wishing strength, safety and good health for our Ukrainian colleagues.

The Beastmaster story made me think of The Ghost and the Darkness! Have to rewatch that.

Stories have the power to change where we think strength lies. Is it with the aggressor, showering a place with bombs, or the aggrieved, whose spirit and heroism persists despite the odds? Who shines brighter? By the time this ends, Zelensky be a symbol unto himself. That’s what stories do: make legends of men.
