I would be interested what does Avalon means to you.
Is it a mystic place where King Arthur awaits till Britannia needs him,
or is it an imaginary place where live will be perfect?
Or is there maybe a place that you would call Avalon?
Have you ever been there?
Tell me what you think!

Avalon

Seriously, since all we know about Avalon is what we read, then yes, I think it's where King Arthur rests in waiting. king.gif

If we get to go there, can I have Lancelot? No, Elspeth I'm not sharing!

I can promise you I wouldn't go to a convent! Ha ha!

Avalon is not a thing of jest .... you must accept the myth or legend as is ....or not .... but those of us who believe in our pure Celtic heritage .... accept it as such

Seriously .... Avalon is a way to pin your hopes and dreams onto something .... if we don't believe in something then what is left .... Avalon is one of those things we tend to zero in on to try to attach ourselves to some kind of reality/fantasy in order to be able to accept the reality or our every day existence .... sometimes vey hard .... we have to believe in something .... for me it is Avalon and all the mythological connnotations that go along with it .... something out there must be real unsure.gif

It is where my wife is able to spend obscene amounts of money on perfume, lipstick, soap and ... wait a minute... No, that's Avon. Sorry, my bad. wink.gif

Seriously, I place Avalon on the same par as Valhalla or, dare I say it, Middle-Earth. It is existent only in reference to the mythological cycle which supports it.

Just my tuppence.

I believe its a place where Gaia and the sprits can live peacefully.
a place where King Aurther waits and where everything is beautiful and lively.
A place I wish I could live.

I have had many thoughts of Avalon. Its exisitance, its meaning, it reality....

There are many possibilities to it. I will sit with this for a spell. Before I put it to text.
Great topic. Get m'mind crankin'!

Why get serious?

You've got to chill, man. And yes, it is a car.

Besides, I gave my serious answer.
