Today my daughter and I returned from another realm, where we spent a weekend immersed in myth, story, music, and art.
Here are photos taken just before the Good Faeries Ball (I recycled my Halloween costume for this):
And just before the Bad Fairies Ball:
We also attended panels of writers and artists, including Brian and Wendy Froud, Jane Yolen, and others.
Of particular interest to me was the session by Whitney and Steven Boe on their film Mythic Journeys, about the importance of myth, enchantment, and spirituality for our lives.
A handmade bench provided a focal point. It is really a headboard but framed a bench for this event.
It was a special weekend.
