What We Become
They tell you when you start the roadThey tell you that the road is longThey don’t tell you it never endsThey don’t tell you that it’s all hills It’s beautiful, it’s beautifulIt’s long, it’s hard, and I am tiredAnd here among these picture booksPerhaps I’ll rest a little while They’re all well-kept, the picture booksLike… Continue reading
Hope Among the Wreckage
I remember the walk through the woods was long. I don’t know why I was walking: I always seem to forget I can fly in these dreams. The sky seemed to have two settings: completely overcast, or blistering sun. I looked down at the red dress and boots, wondered why I was wearing such things. At… Continue reading
The Blessing of the Bread
Queen, Protector, Priestess, Sorceress, Storyteller, Guardian, Faery, Elf, Myth: I am all these things. For the denizens of the Wylds, I am the representative of light, the definition of beauty, the walking guise of Love Itself. And so we come to Lughnasadh. Lammas. First Harvest. The Commemoration of Lugh. And the villagers bring me their loaves… Continue reading
Evening, Morning (with Previews!)

A Beautiful Day for Fair Play
I talk a lot about getting out of the Great Seelie Forest. It would probably be easy to get the impression that I don’t actually like my realm very much, but that would be a wrong impression. What you don’t hear about here in my little ‘blog’ (I love that word!) are the day-to-day activities that make… Continue readingAnalog Dog, Blue Moon enterprise, Cerridwen’s Cauldron, Chimeric Fashions, Deviance, EMO*Tions, Fair Play: Second Life Is A Game, Fallen Gods, Independent Objects, JCNY, Jinx, La Biche, Lumae, LumiPro, Maitreya, Mistique, OK maybe it’s a fantasy fashion blog…., Pink Fuel, The Fantasy Collective, Vengeful Threads
