Three Twisted Knots

Not all those who wander are lost.

Some Realms are Magical. Eclectica is one of those Realms. I first visited Eclectica years and years ago. I think Davey had been through it on his travels, and he recommended that I visit there.

Of course, Realms change. They evolve, in the same way as language evolves, over time. Yesterday, I was feeling nostalgic and decided I’d visit there again.

Eclectica, Reborn

I found that Eclectica has been reborn, newly formed into something very different from, but just as wonderful as its previous incarnation. I took a lot of photographs while I was there (yes, even some selfies!), and all I can say to you is that if you get a chance, put Eclectica on your bucket list of places to visit.

There is a magical forest.

Eclectica is now a series of islands and peninsulas, tied together by an extraordinary, magical forest. And every little grove has a delightful secret waiting to be discovered.

Am I a badass, or are we all going to die? 

Am I a badass here, or are we all going to die? And just what is the drag coefficient on these feathery wings?

Really, I feel that I should just let the photographs speak for themselves.

And no question at all about how someone got here, at least.

This isn’t a fashion-y post, so I’m not going to write the usual long list of credits here. If you’re curious about anything Gwyneth is wearing here, feel free to IM me. If your question is about Eclectica, Maddy is your source!

If you have the chance, Eclectica is a must-see. It opens later today, 31 August, and it’s really worth spending a good, long time there. There is a donation kiosk just outside the landing point: don’t forget to show Maddy a little Linden Love before you leave!
