BURDEN
(bird´n) [ME birthen < OE byrthen] n. 1a. Things one possesses. -n. jour. 1b. The Burden Passage explores what a wayƒarer believes is necessary to carry. (See burden in the Glossary)

The Burden Go Down Go Up
ACCORDING to an English language dictionary, the word burden is associated with that which is undesirable even oppressive, that which is heavy and borne with difficulty or that which is emotionally difficult to bear.
However, throughout the journeys traveled by most wayfarers, the word burden takes on an added association, particularly one of life preserving.
Thus, the burden become both that which is borne by a wayfarer and also what bears a wayfarer.

The former refers to that which is carried with much difficulty due to the often oppressive weight. The later refers to all of those things which cover, ensconce, protect and sustain a wayfarer during the journey.
Thus, the following Episode pages will discuss several of the aspects of this, a wayƒarers burden.
