Thanks, I will. I haven'tdone an Audioboom for ages! I've been really busy. I had a new book come out recently, and I'm directing a play, and one of my own plays is opening in London in March for a short run. Despite being away for so long, nothing seems to have chaged!

Yay for King Arthur! I was totally obsessed with Arthurian legends once upon a time, and I still have a great fondness for them. There's an absolutely fabulous Canadian musician called Heather Dale who has designed entire albums around Arthurian legends. She plays Celtic and folk rock. I would highly recommend that you give her a listen if you can. She's definitely on iTunes, and I'm sure you can find her on YouTube as well. Actually, now that I think of it, I believe I'll post something of hers just for you if you'd care to give it a listen.

Olive wood is lovely. Yes, I've been collecting swords for many years. I've been obsessed with them since childhood, probably something to do with King Arthur! I've both reproductions and originals.

I also have a handmade cross from Jerusalem. Mine is made out of wood from an olive tree. You may think of the cross as an object of torture and pain, and so it was in Roman times, but for Christians, the death and resurrection of Jesus transformed the cross into a symbol of hope. Rather than representing death, for us it represents eternal life and the possibility of resurrection after death. Your hawthorn staff sounds really neat. Since you took the time to form it yourself, I can really see that you would have a connection with it. Strange as this may sound, I believe such things are almost extensions of oneself and one's own spirit. I have to admit to being a tad envious that you have a sword collection. :-) I've always wanted to do that.
