Where Do You Live?

Morgan Llywelyn is the author of a series of historical/fantasy novels about Celtic heritage and the Irish. Good reads, all. I remember, in one (it might have been Bard or Druids) that a druid-in-training was taken to the house of the chief druid. The druid-in-training was very disappointed by the house. It was simple and sparsely furnished. Drab. This, the boy thought, was no place for someone of the chief druid's importance to live.

The boy said, to the chief druid, "You live here?"

The druid replied, "No." The boy looked at him, puzzled. The chief druid pointed to his own head. "I live, here," he said.

                                                          Indeed.
