Welcome to my first monthly post on my travels! I’ve been blessed with traveling to many places–from across the U.S. and Mexico, to Europe. Each one holds a special place in my heart, so I hope you won’t mind if I share them with you.
Several questions I’m often asked in interviews: How were the Dragon Knights created? What was my inspiration? The picture to the left is the start of something truly magical.
“I can feel the Highland breeze on my face, the bleating of sheep, and the ghosts of decades past.” I jotted this down in my journal that evening. The day was June 20, 2000.
Originally, I saw seven to nine men within my creative mind, but finally settled on four. Perhaps the additional men were the Fenian warriors. I can’t say for sure. All I know is where it all began–on a boulder in the Highlands of Scotland. We were staying at the scenic Gaskmore House Hotel in Newtonmore.
It was a wonderful place to daydream and fill my mind with magical stories. Of course, I must indulge you with more pictures of the sheep, so please forgive me.
Beautiful flora everywhere…
This was further down the road. While my husband left me sitting alone to dream, he wandered along a path to capture the gray, evening light. You can see the mists starting to descend.
I didn’t have any good photos of the hotel, but here’s a postcard of the place.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this small tour–a place where the Dragon Knights of Scotland were born and the beginning of a dream…
