Whither The Fates Carry Us [Prologue]
It has been a while since we worked on or posted any projects relating to Stephan’s Poetry! So we where very excited when @tomday reached out to include some of Stephan’s work in the film “Whither the Fates Carry Us” about Bermudian Boxer @adrian_the.champ ‘s Journey!
The poem, written and performed by Stephan, is titled “Live Me”. Which is a reimagined version of the original from off the 2009 Script Keeper Album. Big thanks to @kase.from.bda for the studio time!
Re-recording an updated version of this poem was a moment in itself !!? ??

Bermuda’s Motto Quo Fata Ferunt “Whither the Fates Carry [Us]”.
…The words of the motto come from Virgil’s Aeneid (Book V: 707-710). Like the voyage of the Sea Venture to Virginia and the wreck on Bermuda, Aeneas was sent on a mission from Troy to found a second home that was to become Rome, but became wrecked on Sicily. Also like Bermuda’s castaways, Aeneas and his fellow Trojans deliberated whether to stay or continue the journey to their destination. Aeneas had a vision in which his father said to him: “ … Quo fata trahunt (or ferunt) retrahuntque sequamur; Quidquid erit, superanda omnis fortuna ferendo est.”
This may be translated as: “ … let us follow where the Fates take us or take us back; Whatever will be, every fortune/misfortune can be overcome through perseverance.”… – The Royal Gazette – Read More
