Arcadia

“You know – Arcadia? The realm of the infinity? It’s a poet’s corner. This is the code by which we live our lives. This is the pact we’ve sworn all those years ago that turned us all from enemies into companions and wayfarers and travellers on the seas of Albion. It’s not a cult or a religion – it’s an awareness of your surroundings; you’re not gonna force yourself on anyone and, equally, no-one’s gonna force themselves on you. And it’s about community and pleasure. It came from a whisper through the trees. It came from a crack in the pavement. It can also come when you open a bag of crisps, or when you kick a football against a goalpost. Even if I was winding you up, it would still be true, because Arcadia and the Arcadian Dream is so deep, is so true to our hearts… There have been Arcadian gatherings over the years, but I think the best is yet to come. It can be as powerful as your imagination can allow it to be. But, it can also be as dark and twisted as your soul… Arcadia encompasses the infinite, and that’s why it comforts me.”
