The Summer King has come to the Wode…
Yet to which oath, head or heart, shall he hold?
Once known as the Templar assassin Guy de Gisbourne, dispossessed noble Gamelyn Boundys has come to Sherwood Forest with conflicting oaths. One is of duty: demanding he tame the forest’s druidic secrets and bring them back to his Templar Masters. The other is of heat and heart: given to the outlaw Robyn Hood, avatar of the Horned Lord, and the Maiden Marion, embodiment of the Lady Huntress. The three of them—Summerlord, Winter King, and Maiden of the Spring—are bound by yet another promise, that of fate: to wield the covenant of the Shire Wode and the power of the Ceugant, the magical trine of all worlds. In this last, also, is Gamelyn conflicted; spectres of sacrifice and death haunt him.
Uneasy oaths begin a collision course when not only Gamelyn, but Robyn and Marion are summoned to the siege of Nottingham by the Queen. Her promise is that Gamelyn will regain his noble family’s honour of Tickhill, and the outlaws of the Shire Wode will have a royal pardon.
But King Richard has returned to England, and the price of his mercy might well be more than any of them can afford…
Yeah, I do. Big time. And why not, when there are things like this?
I mean, sharing and experiencing beautiful work and artistry is what it’s all about, eh?
Watch these two amazing athletes full screen. More than once. Meryl Davis and Charlie White are contenders for Olympic gold, two bloody amazing ice dancers, and if their performance does not make your jaw drop, then you are made of the stuff they’re gliding on. I’ve been a dancer my entire life and have had a soft spot for Ice Dancing ever since the teams were emulating the look of a bodice ripper romance novel 😉 … but now it is amazing. Art with a firm foundation of amazing technique.
(Because Art and Technique are bendy and passionate lovers who can go through the entire Kama Sutra forwards & backwards if you let them.)
But wait, I’ve more Beauty to share, albeit a different and joyful expression of it. From mind-blowing veterans to a bloody brilliant new skater who has just moved up to the senior circuit and has art oozing out his toe picks. Jason Brown just got picked for the Olympic team. He doesn’t have a quad jump–yet. He has MORE. Like depth and expression and amazing transitions and musicality. No soulless jumping bean here. Massive props to his coach for developing his talent with forethought and, moreover, patience.
And hey–he’s got a ponytail!
Yep, I’mma looking forward to the Olympics.
