I am honoured that gallery owner, Ceakay Ballyhoo, is creating and presenting a shortened version of one of my stories, “Tales of the Tuatha.” Ceakay is a storyteller, and artist/creator of A Water Colour Wander and The Forest Beyond in the virtual world of SL.
You will be enchanted as Ceakay transports you to the world of an ancient Celtic legend, that of Niamh (Neev), one of the people of the mound (also called the Tuatha de danann or sidhe) and her journey through a pouch of dreams to the Sacred Spring where she meets the mortal chieftain Oisin (O’sheen), whose fate has been intertwined with hers in those dreams.
Ceakay is working hard on this sim which I have seen and can say with certainty is magical! She is using the images from the story which have inspired her landscape along with the storyboard text so that people who visit can read as they go along. On opening day the story will be presented in voice (to be announced).
The end of a fine story is like the end of life itself. I love Niamh. What spirit, what soul, what dream you put in her is pure, lovely, and most enchanting. I find it very saddening that all stories must come to an end. Thank you for sharing it, Cybele!- P. Nena
an absolutely magical tale – absolutely beautiful images and a magical story. Your words weave quite a spell.- S.G.
In ancient Ireland you would be known as a Seanchai! You know how to draw the reader into the tale! Ed Mooney
