Darkness before Dawn

Hello to all my WordPress friends,

I’m still dealing with some difficult family issues, and still rising myself, from the swirling Stygian winter depths.

but here is all my news so far:

Spring is arriving on the mountainside

and corridors of light are opening up the forest floor

“Silence is the language of God, all else is poor translation“- Jalaluddin Rumi

my submission to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness 4-1 (four great years!)

and news on another front:

A friend of mine from the Netherlands who is a watercolour artist asked if she could bring my Tales of the Tuatha to a virtual world. Inspired by my own images she created a brilliant representation, and a storyteller from Seanchai Library read a shortened version of the tale in a virtual setting to any who “logged in.” It was a delightful fantasy experience and one more interesting venue for the arts. I have posted it on the Desert Mice Story Blog where there are links to some great reviews of the installation.


let’s take the stigma out of mental illnesses and not be afraid to talk about it.
