I Agree!




You're The Mists of Avalon!

by Marion Zimmer Bradley

You're obsessed with Camelot in all its forms, from Arthurian legend to the Kennedy administration. Your favorite movie from childhood was "The Sword in the Stone". But more than tales of wizardry and Cuban missiles, you've focused on women. You know that they truly hold all the power. You always wished you could meet Jackie Kennedy.


Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.


Very appropriate choice for me. I truly loved this book...and the movie...the book sits on my bedside table! And yes, it's more than the fantasy and the political intrigue. It IS the women. I spent years immersed in educating myself in women's history & thealogy. Had I not come to it long after I'd begun accounting as my career, I would now be a professor of Women's Studies. (Hmm...makes me think of Barbara Walker, except that I don't think she's a professor?)

Note to self: buy the remaining 3 books in Barbara Walker's Treasuries to go with the rest of the books by her on my bookshelf!
And maybe it's time to re-read Mists!

Yes, buy the other 3 Barbara Walker books. I'm not sure of her professorhood either.

Great book! Have you read Mary Stewart's Arthurian cycle?

This is such funny timing; I've been thinking it's time to reread this book myself (a long-time favorite). I no longer have a copy, but I'm pretty sure that my local used bookstore does... :)

I loved Mists too. I took the quiz and I'm Hermann Hesse's Siddhartha. Interesting as I enjoyed that book.

Totally loved The Mists! I read everything I could on the Arthurian legends when I was younger. Kindred spirits?

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
