If you look up at the main menu above you'll notice a link to STORIES.
What are they?
STORIES are what happen in the Impossible Garden & the Wildforest. They are the overheard conversations, the gossip of the flowers and the trees, the fragments written on bones and stones. They are the secrets whispered by the wind, the tales of the stars, the knowledge earned or traded with the forest dwellers. They are the fairy tales that had been forgotten or never told. They are the rules and the history and how they are repeatedly broken and rewritten. They are the murmurings of magic, the language of hidden love, the wildness beneath every order and the pattern beneath every chaos. They are truths and they are lies and in the end they are real to those who have the heart to see.
What can you expect?
Poems. Snippets of beginnings, middles, and endings. Conversations. Expect the logic and sequence of dreams. A lot of tangles as well as a lot of loose ends. Seeds and bones and questions. Oblique answers. Ramblings and meanderings. Unsent letters. Secrets. Spells and curses. Dreamtellings. The occasional prophecy. Glimpses and clues. Light and shadows. May not always be agreeable or pleasant. Lots of magic, certainly.
So "real life" here in the blog and true life in Stories. At some point portions of the Stories will be gathered into illustrated / handlettered books so that will be something to look forward to. All Stories are original and from my own direct experience as a dweller and keeper of the Garden and the Wildforest. All my art are inspired by the Garden and the Wildforest, and often my art and my stories will merge. This is the way of Things and the way of my creation.
The voices in Stories are not always mine. Sometimes my fellow forest dwellers will speak. Sometimes I will merely write down what I have been told. It should not matter. The Stories are all true, they all come from a true place and a true heart.
Read on at the risk of believing in magic and the impossible. May you find favour among the odd.
