Almost Avalon - Thorn Sully

Only in the last five years did I learn that “Avalon” is the Celtic word for paradise.  This is an Adam and Eve story.  Catalina Harbor, on the windward side of the island, is almost Avalon.  For Aaron and Melissa in this story, it is almost paradise.  Almost Avalon…almost.

“Melissa, the only man in your life who could love you more than me is the man you are helping me to become.”

“Sails on the horizon, white and jagged, a regatta of sharks’ teeth, devour what is left of the day.”

    Great radio show Thorn. You slayed it with laughter, wit and getting in what you needed to promote. It was a pleasure to listen in.

    Damn it, man. The concrete didn’t give up the ghost until well past your finest hour. Does the radio show have an archive??

      I got the broadcast as a iTunes download and a shared item off of FaceBook “It Matters Radio – Live Talk Radio at It’s Best posted in Chris Fulmer of Stays in Vegas – Thornton Sully of A Word With You Press.

      If you are on FaceBook Michael look me up as Parisianne Modert and I will try to share the item over to you after accepting your request.

      Thank you for your help, Parisianne. I pulled my facebook page about a year ago after a serious breach of privacy. Something like Thorn went through with the sight around the same time. I have yet to consider restoring it. The Vegas number will be a great help.

      I do have to wonder where all the Michael Stang’s come from. I feel like there is only me. (How foolish.)
