Brilliant conference in Slovenia

You may wonder why I’m showing you this pic of romantic Lake Bled.  It’s because I went to conference this summer on contemporary literature and theatre.  We visited the castle high an a crag overlooking the lake.  Pure gothic.  I’m trying to find a way of getting Hildegard to visit but so far she’s still in London at the so-called Wonderful Parliament of 1386 and France is about to invade…She’d be safer in the Castle of Bled.  She might make some headway with Abbot de Courcy too.  There’s a legend about the island in the lake.  If a woman makes the crossing to it at dead of night she can summon her true love to appear.  Only if she’s pure in mind and body will he do so.  If she’s been flighty a great storm will be summoned up and she’s unlikley to make it back to shore.  None of us pult this to the test.
