Dreams of a knightly life


About a year ago the Higgins Armory Museum (In Worcester Massachusetts) closed its doors for good.  What a shame.  They had such a beautiful collection of weapons and armor. I wrote about my trip there on my website here. I also have pictures: http://medieval.stormthecastle.com/higgins-armory-of-weapons-and-armor.htm

Well, a company in London was assigned to auction off the assets. And I got on their mailing list. Once they got everything sorted and figured out they put together an auction and sent me an auction list complete with pictures, estimated prices and the days of the auction.

Of course lots and lots of things caught my eye. There was so much good stuff going up for auction. But two things caught my eye in particular. Stained Glass Windows. (They are both in this post).

And I thought to myself “Some people live an enchanted life, unlike the most of us”.

This is what I mean.

Let’s fly out to London for a few days, go to the auction, bid on those windows, spend a few of days experiencing Great Britain then come back – stained glass windows in hand.”

Some people have that capability in their lives. There is a flexibility that comes with having money. It isn’t just about buying things. It is more about being able to do and experience what is right in your life.

This is how a knight lives. He masters the times that he lives in. He experiences a life full of wonderful experiences. He sees a goal and goes and gets it -Slaying any dragons that need slaying.
