Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Chivalry Is Not Dead

"And peace, Eustace. Do not scold, like a kitchen-girl. No warrior scolds. Courteous words or else hard knocks are his only language."

King Tirian, Last King of Narnia

~ C.S. Lewis, The Chronicles of Narnia

The virtues of chivalry are fidelity, honesty, courtesy, prowess and generosity. They are suited to either man or woman. They are sorely lacking in our time.

Astonish your friends ~ adopt the virtues of chivalry!
