“The Indwelling Fire” © Matt Baldwin-Ives
With the permission of the writers Sarah-Jayne Chapman and Matt Baldwin-Ives at the In the Chimehours blog I am re-blogging this wonderfully written piece by Sarah-Jayne with artwork by Matt at Miles Cross called Di Inferi – The Gods Below: Of Contact, Dream and Memory.
I read a lot of blog posts regarding our relationships to the gods in a polytheistic and other ways of definition. To those of us interested in contacting our Old Gods I recommend this haunting explanation, with quotes from Lovecraft, and will just quote a line from it referring to “The Divine Madness. The Overshadowing. The Indwellers. The Ensnaring. The Singing of the Muses.” I always look forward to their atmospheric collaborations of words and images.
