I’ve started posting an illustration a day on a new Facebook page @applesofaeden… as my broken heelbone heals I continue to practice focus – blinkering even – to finish a highly illustrated shorter version of Volume One of The Apples of Aeden, the Girl and the Guardian. I’ve migrated to Facebook mostly because there is where people mostly see a post and more importantly, easily comment, like, love and follow. I love blogs, but the action is seemingly on Facebook and other social media and image-centred platforms like Instagram.
And sadly Facebook no longer provide for linking of posts automatically from a blog to a Facebook page … grrr! We are at their mercy unless we go out into the wilderness of alternative platforms.
So, if you like to see my thought in words and images of fiction and fantasy, I hope you’ll go to the Apples of Aeden page and like and follow the quest there!
The latest project, Dreamspace Gisborne. I gave a Pecha Kucha talk on Friday the 13th at the Dome theatre. It’s fun to participate in an evening where people of various walks of life share their passions, hobbies and missions… I posted on this in www.dreamspace.nz which is where I’ll tell the story of this project as it unfolds and put up related resources.
This may be a more comfortable name for them – wo-man, sheman etc are all perhaps a bit odd or biased one way or another… So, here they are photoshopped to look like… well, like the vision in my mind, more or less… The sculpture won’t have the glow, unless at night…
The little people on the woman are (from volume iv of the Apples of Aeden) the refugee fairies of Aeden, who get taken on the ship to eastern lands, seeking Avalon. see https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/320474
The woman spreads her arms to the horizon, loving all the earth, while the man reaches up and makes contact with heaven, in the form of the diamond World, and the heartstone which ascended.
