the Quest is almost ready to be sold as a card game you can buy in your very own personalized cloth bag!
Over the Winter members of Transition Plymouth Art Group have been beavering away working on both the pattern that will soon be available for prospective bag makers to download from this website, AND the very first bag.
I have entered my SoulScapes for their very first competition, as preparation for my first exhibition on the 28th April in Rattery. You can now see examples of my art on the Society for All Artists web gallery.
In May 2010 I was walking between Waltham Abbey and Cambridge on my journey to collect Transition Tales. You can read the story of that in chapter 5 of my book “Tales of Our Times” – The Sacred and The Profane.
It all started like this…
Waltham Abbey, says the Isle of Man bred manager of the New Inn, is the weirdest place he has ever worked in. WynnAlice is inclined to agree; its grand name is initially lived up to as the abbey is the first thing to be seen; its beautiful flint and chalk walls nestling perfectly in a V between two roads. After that, the main street is pedestrianized; and though it is easy to see the lay of the original town and many of the old pubs are still in business, none of them offer accommodation any longer and the shops have an air of poverty about them.
Here, captured in pictures, is a flavour of that walk…
‘Tis the last day in this haven of creative action and WynnAlice feels herself to be quite at home; sun worshipping by the river as the cows amble past, a musing herself with the notion that she has found at last a place where a person can walk or cycle where ever she pleases.
