The Story of Spirit of Albion – 2006

It would be impossible and wrong to write about my album Spirit of Albion and not include my band from the late 90s Spiral Castle. I wrote my first Pagan song, Tomb of the King, after attending a Druid ritual at the Newbury bypass demonstrations. I tell the story of that song here. This initial

Thinking About – Weird Sh*t

Inspired by events on a Facebook message board after two crop circles appeared near the Long Man of Wilmington our local moot chose to discuss our feelings and views on this kind of event/phenomena.

An Amazing Idea!

I shared this on Twitter and Facebook last week but wanted to post it here on my blog as I think it is such an amazing idea. Take some time to watch the video and see what you think. Yes it would cost a lot of money but, as it says, the employment and long-term

Reconnecting to the Source
