Evermore is that place you fight for. (See Led Zeppelin’s “Battle for Evermore”). It is the Western Isles, Avalon, Valhalla, the Sacred Grove beyond the Gateway and all those other places that linger just beyond your consciousness. It is a promise of more.
Evermore is filled with the beauty and wonder of nature and the magic of the earth. In Evermore the Druids dance and the Fairies fly and nature and magic abound. And if you can tap into that place, that energy and that magic, you can sometimes bring forth some wonderful things into this world to remind us that Evermore is worth fighting for.
I try to Escape to Evermore whenever I can.
Escape To Evermore is the name I gave to a business I started which tries to connect with all of the magic of nature and spirit and to bring some of that magic into manifestation in this world. I am starting with baby steps. I have been spending my days learning about and experimenting with the colors that nature produces. These are the colors that I am using to naturally dye wools and yarns using plants, flowers, woods and . . . bugs. You can find those yarns for sale on Etsy at www.etsy.com/shop/escapetoevermore . However, I shortly expect that those dyes are about to find some new uses as the world of fairies has started to enter into prominence in our work and I suspect a series of woodland fairy costumes are going to make their appearance in my shop in the not too distant future. A purple Logwood Fairy or a yellow Fusticwood Fairy sound just lovely. Soft leather is also waiting in my living room for an elven ranger (or rangette?) to make its presence known.
If you would like to see the posts about the dyeing work that I have been doing up until now, please check out my first blog at www.apolishgranddaughter.wordpress.com .
Now it is time for Escape to Evermore to step out on its own. It has its own store and its own blog and seems poised to take off and fly – on fairy wings. Hope you come back and check in often.
Onward and Upward.
