Antosa believes that Love never Fails for I am a true, blue, pure, Romantic!
And what could be more Romantic than the
legend of the Holy Grail one of the most enduring Romantic tales in Western
European Literature & Art.
The search for this magical vessel became the
principal quest of the knights of King Arthur, and continues to capture the
imagination even now in the 21st Century

Holy Grail" by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, ca. 1874

the Quest of the Holy Grail (1870) by Arthur Hughes (1832-1915) oil on

Writings of the Holy Grail first appear
in a written text in Chrétien de Troyes's Old French verse romance, the Conte
del Graal ('Story of the Grail'), or Perceval, of c.1180.
With the passing of the Middle Ages, the
Grail disappears for centuries until the 19th century when medieval history and
legend awoke the interest of writers such as Scott and Tennyson, of the artists
of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and of composers, notably Richard Wagner
Now we live in the 21st Century Love and
Romance is very much alive and the quest for the illusive magical Holy Grail
Antosa believes that there is a Holy Grail
that lies within us all
a unique cup, chalice that holds Eternity and Everlasting Divine Beauty.
A Golden Chalice, A
Heart of Gold, that flows with perfect emotions & Acts of Pure Unconditional Love that emanates from deep from within our Heart and Soul, an ocean of Unconditional Love vibrating within our most Holy of Holy Hearts.
Antosa wishes everyone from the bottom of her
heart to have a wonderful 2015 Festive season
And raises a heartfelt chalice of Love, Peace,
Joy & Happiness to one and all as we welcome in the New Year 2016!
