My Introduction to Avalon…
As a dreamy Pisces, I love living in a beautiful faerytale land in my imagination. As such, I fell in love with Avalon.
In 2006 I was gifted a book. I opened it several times, but it didn’t feel right. There is also a stubborn streak in me that says when people tell me, “You HAVE to read this book!” I deliberately avoid it.
Such was the case with The Mists of Avalon.
The day I started the book I was sitting in a doctor’s office with my husband – we were waiting for the confirmation of our pregnancy. Looking back, this was, of course, the best time to have started this book!
Physically, when you are pregnant your brain remaps itself because of all the hormones. It’s prime learning time. Emotionally, it was my first child, and so it was frightening, uplifting, moving and touching all at the same time. Spiritually, I knew that my life was going to be forever changed and blessed with the gift of a child.
Needless to say, I continued reading.
I can definitely say (as this website might suggest) that The Mists of Avalon changed my life.
I felt when I was reading it’s weighty passages that this was so much more than a work of fiction – but exposing a memory. A long forgotten memory. My focus was not so much on the characters, but the subtext of the novel – the central theme of Paganism being overtaken by Christianity.
I eagerly read to find the next part of the book that took place in Avalon. I wanted to know more and more about the rituals, Tor, Merlyn, the magik, the faery folk and mystery that lay beyond the veil. It was fascinating and intriguing.
I was engaged in learning, not reading. Engaged in an initiation – I knew it was fiction, but it felt real. It felt like coming home.
The Parting of the Mists – Discovering my Path
Until recently (thanks to a Saturn return), I believed that my creative side was left in the past. I had segmented my life into work and practical mundane activities.
I lost myself, much like Morgaine – but rather than living in a beautiful timeless faery world, I was lost in a stark and uncreative routine.
I recently have woken up – realizing that as an artist, I need to create. I have an obligation to create. And this website is one of the manifestations of that drive. I know there are others out there that feel the call of Avalon.
During my awakening, I keep coming back to Celtic tradition. I kept wondering what “little me” could do.
My intent with this site is to create a sanctuary in a cluttered and crowded crazy world.
I welcome you to come with me on a journey through the Mists of time and back to Avalon. Reconnect with your Purpose. Reconnect with your Soul.
