The Channel Islands

When I learned Rena was living on the Isle of Wight I thought of the Channel Islands off the coast of Los Angeles where my grandfather camped with other writers.

  1. Reblogged this on rosamondpress and commented:

    I suggest a pre-Christian cosmology be installed on the Channel Isles. In Gallo-Roman religion, Rosmerta was a goddess of fertility and abundance, her attributes being those of plenty such as the cornucopia. Rosmerta is attested by statues, and by inscriptions. In Gaul she was often depicted with the Roman god Mercury as her consort, but is sometimes found independently.

    A relief from Autun (ancient Augustodunum, the civitas capital of the Celtic Aedui), shows Rosmerta and Mercury seated together as a divine couple (see above). She holds a cornucopia, with Mercury holding a patera at her left side.
