Hello :) Thank you for letting me join!
My personal goal for this KAL, is to make it last the entire year, breaking the chapters of the book down, so that I read two chapters (approximate) for every one project I make. Re-reading the text as often as necessary during a project. If for some reason I fail an average of 35 projects, then I'll finish reading the book before years end, and if I manage more than said number, then I'll start the book over I think. I fully plan to enjoy this whole process of reflection and art.

Here is my first: My "Prologue Purls" (even though they are crocheted...)

There isn't much to discuss from the prologue, but a bit of text stood out to me as lovely and magical. I have snipped bits inbetween, and placed it as it spoke to me...

"The world has changed, and Arthur -king who was and king who shall be- lies dead in the Holy Isle of Avalon. There was a time when a traveller, if he had the will and knew only a few of the secrets, could send his barge out into the Summer Sea and arrive not at Glastonbury of the monks, but at the Holy Isle of Avalon; for at that time the gates between worlds drifted within the mists, and were open, one to another, as the traveller thought and willed. And now the priests have closed those doors (which were never doors, except in the minds of men), and the pathway leads only to the priests' Isle, which they have safeguareded with the sound of their church bells, driving away all thoughts of another world lying in the darkness."

Peace, Luthien Elendil

Thank you! I know it sounds steep, especially since I'm new, but I know I'll make it. :)
