Fantastic Adventure, Greenfield Bridge
October 14, 2017
King of the Forest
The King of the Forest has not awoken since the Victorian days of the city, and last hob-knobed with industrialists. He sticks to formal evening-wear, including an elaborate metal domino mask, though his horns (see reflection in mirror) and his leafy autumn hair are always present.
The Pittsburgh Creed
Written by an anonymous Greenfield resident, this updated Creed (based on The Pittsburgher's Creed, James G. Connell, approx. 1914) sprouted autumnally from a Tree at the top of Winterburn Ave, overlooking Schenley Park.
The Creed Tree Blossoms
Atop Winterburn Avenue, looking out over Schenley Park, the Pittsburgh Creed springs forth on red and gold ribbons from overgrown, vine-addled branches.
A Royal Picnic on Winterburn Ave
It's good to be king. I lunched on Winterburn Ave, the Creed Tree behind me.
Charcuterie, fresh apples, ginger beer, and a Bridge Witches tarot deck.

The King Takes A Walk
For some ice cream, among other human delights.
The Maypole of Wisdom
Song for Wisdom, Song for Wonder
To open the bridge, the assembled crowd gathered and tally'd the talismans of Wisdom and of Wonder. Having found a winner, they sang a calling song, to bring that spirit to the bridge. Hence, a Song for Wisdom, and a Song for Wonder.
I modeled them on "Daniel Prayed" - a well known Appalachian folk tune. In the spirit of that tradition, I've turned both songs loose - they are Creative Commons Zero licensed - Public Domain.
