Spinning A Yarn - Julie Cross
Spinning A Yarn (Three Fates) is a series by Julie Cross. The Three Fates, or Morai, have long fascinated me, as they have countless others since the Ancient Greeks. The three all-powerful female figures have the power of life or death over we mere mortals and the gods – spinning the thread of life, allotting its length, and cutting the thread. For me, they are not figures of dread, as they are inextricably bound up with the power of creation and ‘re-birth’, and I relish the complex weaving of endless narratives which can be re-created at will, ad infinitum.
