The Crown of Glory

Mag Mell (delightful plain) is one of the names for the Otherworld, accessed through death and glory. Only a select few had access to this paradise, which was an island or sometimes depicted as a kingdom beneath the ocean. It is a place where gods reside and where occasionally some daring mortals go. In this otherworld, there is no such thing as illness or death. Here, art, music, and power converge in one location where youth and beauty never age. No one is hungry or thirsty here, and happiness lasts forever. I have occasionally felt as though I was searching for a paradise on earth that I may discover by chance as a lone traveler. I've been frantically looking for it and it wasn't until one day that I realized it existed inside of me all along, buried beneath a sea of delightful pain and heavy iron. A blazing flower crown for this life and an illustration of what being an artist often really means.
