Final Day – Heart of Albion

Kindle Countdown Offer – Final Day 6th January 2014


‘But which came first, the experience or the form?’

‘Well, as they would have been very much in the landscape, presumably the experience, which was then only later confirmed by observation of the form.’

‘I am very much reminded of the Aboriginal Dreaming.’

‘It does seem to be a similar conception of being… Malaga Man he went walking… he walked this way… walking, walking… he got tired here… sat down and fell asleep… Rainbow Snake emerged from a Water-Hole whilst he slept… That snake tried to swallow him whole… Malaga Man woke up in time and caught hold of Rainbow Snake’s tail…It broke off in his hands… he dropped it then…left shards of rainbow everywhere.’

‘One wonders where they are getting it from.’

‘Then one realises that they’re reading it in the land.’

‘Mmmm… Is that the end?’ 

‘Hardly, it is just the beginning. You seem a little nonplussed…’

‘I’m still not totally convinced by the St Nicholas connection.’

‘Ah, you’re just sore because I shushed you.’

‘I am not! It is a bit tenuous though don’t you think?’

‘On its own it would be perhaps but the ship episode from St Nick’s legend is linked too.’

‘What, the miracle where Nick boards the ship, the crew’s food is lost in a storm so they eat the cargo and when they pull in to port the cargo is wholly intact, is linked to this story, in what way?’

‘Not this story, though as it develops you’ll see some more parallels, but the character which Father Fish is based on is, in the tradition, reputed to possess a cauldron of plenty. The ship’s miraculously replenished cargo is merely a later version of the same concept.’

‘Well, I’ll give you that I suppose and reserve judgment on the rest.’

‘My lady is too kind… By the way, he also possesses a rather large club.’

Wen smiles but says nothing…

‘The club is knobbed.’

Still nothing…

“If I am consciously following a woman who is about to engage a Llama in conversation, which I certainly appear to be, it does not impinge too negatively upon my thought processes.”

What does Jack and the Beanstalk have to do with a spiritual quest? What, for that matter, is the nature of the relationship between Salome and the Jester? Why is Wen conversing with a llama in the Yorkshire Dales? And what links the beautiful and sacred landscape that is the Heart of Albion with Breakfast in Slug Town? These, and many other questions, must be considered as Don and Wen continue the journey begun in The Initiate exploring the shadowy roots of the ancient myths and legends of these Blessed Isles, steering a perilous path through the murky waters of religious symbolism and iconography.

“Breakfast in Slug Town?”

Join them on their continuing quest for knowledge and understanding as they explore the landscape of England and people it with strange creatures and even stranger theories, using sacred intent and guided imagination to penetrate into the mysteries unfolding before them.

Illustrated in full colour throughout (colour display dependent on compatible device)
