IS IT THE CASE ?

On Thursday morning 10 July 2014, I woke completely unaware I was celebrating Thor, the God Of Thunder (whyever he got such good press, I don’t know), and found that I could not remember the specific dream I had…. and then as I wrote I asked myself ‘but what of the great on-going dream…..’     Continue reading “IS IT THE CASE ?”

IT’S ALWAYS ME

No matter what I do, where I go, who I meet, what age I am, what I call myself, whether I succeed or fail, I always seem to be the same person. This sea is crossed, that mountain is climbed, this is where I live, that is where I used to live, this depression isContinue reading “IT’S ALWAYS ME”

May

I continue to be amazed at the great winds of energy that blow through me during the great Celtic/pre-Christian festivals of the year. Bealtaine for me, which I have written about in a recent blog was no exception. On the first of May, I renewed my commitment to music, to which the universe responded to by sendingContinue reading “May”

THRILLOGY: This, Song, And More

This asleep, the stirring, what is this?…..oh yes…. lets give this another go, cradled and alive to this as we always are rebirthed to this suckling at the nipple of this blissfully, painfully, transcending in ritual the cellular encumbrance of this to bask in the glow of this new light standing tall, facing all, I feel this energy this animated surrender, isContinue reading “THRILLOGY: This, Song, And More”

The Sheeps Head as painted by The White House

Adoring the curve, lightly expanding, round, through, too, through, and beyond. Standing still I’m brought to my knees, Falling deeper into that feeling of want Adoring that note, its rhyme and its rhythm, toned, overtoned and throned. Its never that, its always this. Falling deeper into this feeling of want Adoring the wave, all stiff withContinue reading “The Sheeps Head as painted by The White House”

Oh! To be together again

In the beginning was God. Since then God has had a rollercoaster of a ride, rough, smooth, being ignored, abused, praised and called all sorts of names. Yet resilience resides. Under whatever guise you wish to experience God, God still is and is just the same as ever So back to the beginning again. God.Continue reading “Oh! To be together again”

Lovers for a moment

Its funny, after all these years, and having ‘left’ so long ago, I still dream of my early childhood a lot and the village I grew up in. I dreamt last night of walking thru the village again as an adult and noticed that all the shops and businesses I grew up with, were eitherContinue reading “Lovers for a moment”

The Eagle Dance

Practising the Eagle Dance at Earthsong 2012 Looking back over the week at earthsong what was most powerful for me was the eagle dance.

The eagle, the leader of birds, holds a particular resonance in their rituals. MadelineContinue reading “The Eagle Dance”

This very very present moment or something like that!
