A caravan of Violet's kin are parked in the local campground
for the time it takes to live through a good read.
|O'Dooley's Caravan Campground|
This first story destination, the Ordinary World is most often visualized as the calm before the storm. In Picture Book, a visitor will enter at the ring of the chime. If the visitor turns right (a statistical advantage) she will find a pastoral campground, a wonderful storytelling campfire, an arts festival and a red brick schoolhouse. What situation evokes more tranquility? On the other hand the hero is called to adventure while living in the ordinary world. The prospect of leaving a cozy nest is not well received by most heroes.
