I can hear the echo of my greeting, this blog has been that empty for that long. In fact I am greeting myself, returning to the magical place where for several years I wrote words in an attempt to connect fantasy with reality. Welcome back Eleanor.
The magic spells worked. I have the proof in the shape of a circle of friends - fellow word artists of the highest order. Also, a new career in which my words and images have taken flight and reached two or three people who have stopped and read and listened, even paid me for my services.
But this blog, much like Howl's Moving Castle, is my only true portal to the fantastic lands in which I am happiest.
This is certainly not a state-of-the-art blog. It's clunky, dusty, worn around the edges, but it travels well enough and has access to all four doors necessary for true happiness. And no I'm not going to tell you what those are, they're different for each person so it's of no use to even ask.
I can, however, give you a metaphorical tour of the place. Follow me.....
