December 31, 2008 - The Seven Fauns

On December 31 each year, I have an appointment with creatures from the In-Between-World. These magical encounters help me to get easily from one year into another and not to lose my inspiration.

This morning I woke up at 5 and, surprise, found myself being stared at by The Seven Fauns. I prepared breakfast for them while they played with Oscar. They promised to be my muses for the new year 2009.

[Faun \Faun\, n. [L. Faunus, fr. favere to be favorable. See Favor.] (Rom. Myth.)
A god of fields and shipherds, diddering little from the satyr. The fauns are usually represented as half goat and half man. Satyr or Faun, or Sylvan. --Milton.]

Ohh Andrea, you already have your muse for 2009! Now how cool is that? I know they are going to lead you on a wonderful path through the year with so much adventure and exploration. I am excited to see where you will be led next year! These fauns must be truly special since they have come to "play" with YOU!

Much Love and Happy New Year!
