The Hermit – A Story Part 1

The alarm dragging him slowly from sleep. Hit the snooze button. Relax. But ten minutes later there it is again, the programmed, electronic buzz that, every day, forces him from sleep into semi-consciousness. Throw back the covers.

Thinking About – Sovereignty and Monarchy

A couple of weeks ago me and Cerri watched the new Netflix series The Crown. It tells the story of the early years of Queen Elizabeth II, with wonderful performances from the cast, and some of the back stories were real eye openers to me. I had never properly realised that, with the abdication of

A Dream Come True

In 1978 my parents dropped me and my friend off outside the Brighton Centre to see our first ever live concert. It was Thin Lizzy on their Black Rose tour. Our seats were on the left side balcony and I will never forget my first encounter with live rock music. Phil Lynott was a magical

Gratefulness, Changes, and New Memories

If you visit any self-help or mindfulness sites one of the practices they all seem to recommend is to spend some time each day thinking about the things in your life for which you are grateful. I know how lucky I am. I have a roof over my head, food in the fridge, an amazing

Stillness. And the Night of Misrule.

Although our house it still full of builders I can feel Autumn's blessed peace approaching. I have two more gigs this year, Witchfest International at the Brighton Centre in November, and Tenbury Mistletoe Festival in December, then no more gigs until the PF Devon and Cornwall conference in March.
