Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," where we greet you on this Holy Evening with a portrait of Queen Brighid the Bright. Oh, let her make a comeback! Let her find the seekers of light and truth, the defenders of hearth and home, the children of Avalon!
We are here, Queen Brighid! We are your merlins. You are our magic.
This fabulous portrait of the goddess was channeled by the artist Brian Froud. We at "The Gods Are Bored" feel emboldened to attach it to important posts because we have enriched Mr. Froud by purchasing all his books, and - more importantly - by purchasing a large signed print of the work of art above (at no small expense) and making it the centerpiece of our home altar.
Tonight we welcome the presence of our departed loved ones back into our midst. The veil is thin, the sky is clear. Some choice firewood remains for a bonfire.
THE MERLIN OF BERKELEY SPRINGS
