Let the Realms Faire Begin! Wisdom of the Creative Realms #grogz #prizes

M. Pax's Realms Faire starts today & runs till Friday, November 14. Last year many of you, my loyal knaves, cheered me on to champion the Joust, and it was so much fun, I decided to host my own event this year: The Wisdom of the Creative Realms.  Through the ages, the arts have spoken truth and wisdom in away that resonates far deeper than the words from any textbook can. King Arthur's table was round to encourage equality and open sharing of opinions,

From November 10-14, consider my blog to be a round table at which I invite you to sit and share wisdom from the creative arts. I shall richly reward you for your wisdom with prizes. Each day will feature a different media, a follows:

Tuesday, November 11: Books
Either in the comments here or at your own blog, share with the round table a quote or piece of wisdom from any book you have read during your lifetime.

Wednesday, November 12: Movies
Either in the comments here or at your own blog, share with the round table a quote or piece of wisdom from any movie you have watched during your lifetime.

Thursday, November 13: Music
Either in the comments here or at your own blog, share with the round table a quote or piece of wisdom from any song or piece of music.

Friday, November 14: Jester's Choice
Who is the Jester? You are the Jester. Either in the comments here or at your own blog, share with the round table a quote or piece of wisdom from any type of creative art---it can even be from something that you yourself wrote.

Earn points simply by sharing a wisdom in the comments of each post. If you post your wisdom at your blog, let me know in the comments and you'll be awarded 5 EXTRA points!
Points accumulate until midnight on Friday and will be announced the following Monday. 


The prizes:

To honor your great wisdom and the new wisdom to come through all those books you'll read, I'll award 5 beaded owl bookmarks to the people WHO've accumulated the most wisdom points.


I'm thrilled to have secured prizes from two wonderful authors of Arthurian novels!


2 eBooks of Legendary by LH Nicole.

Aliana Fagan spent her childhood traveling the world, dreaming of legendary heroes and mythical lands. But after the sudden death of her parents, she hides behind the safety of her camera and her art until a vivid recurring dream compels her to dig into her father's research about Avalon and Camelot. When she is hurled into a magical realm by forces she thought were only the stuff of fairy tales, she finds herself thrown into an adventure she could never have imagined. Nearly everything she thought she knew about Arthurian legend was wrong. 



2 eBooks of Shades of Avalon by Carol Oates.

Ben Pryor grew up as an average kid in Camden, Maine, unaware of the supernatural storm brewing in his Celtic blood. However, at nineteen, as the last born in the royal line of beings that once ruled Atlantis, Ben has eagerly embraced his newfound abilities and birthright. In the sequel to Shades of Atlantis, Ben will delve deeper than he ever imagined into the old, magical ways of the Guardians, the secrets of Excalibur, and the truth behind the legend of King Arthur. What exactly did the Council hide beneath the citadel of Camelot? And can it help get Caleb back without putting the world in danger?

There was so much happening in this post I started feeling like I was physically at a real fair.

I'm always terrible at remembering quotes.

There are so many wonderful pieces of wisdom...

"…there was a language in the world that everyone understood, a language the boy had used throughout the time that he was trying to improve things at the shop. It was the language of enthusiasm, of things accomplished with love and purpose, and as part of a search for something believed in and desired."
From The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
