Selecting My Story for Through the Labyrinths of the Mind

by Bevan Thomas

After I put together the general plan of Through the Labyrinths of the Mind, I had to figure out what my own story would be. I knew many people would be contributing memoirs, so I wanted to do something different. Something that would reflect my struggles with self-destructive depression in a way that would be unusual yet personal. I’d been getting really into Welsh folklore, exploring my own cultural heritage through various writing projects, and I remembered the legend of Geraint, one of King Arthur’s knights. Geraint is forced to forsake his knightly lifestyle in order to run his family’s kingdom. Being a knight is so fundamental to Geraint’s identity that its loss plunges him into a deep depression. No one, not even Geraint’s wife, can understand why he abandons his kingly duties, withdraws into himself, and eventually seeks to die.
