Thinking About – Home and our Connection to the Land

I was born in Cornwall, that mysterious peninsula at the far south west of Britain. A place of moorland, majestic rocky shores with the mighty Atlantic ocean pounding it's grey stone cliffs. A place of small fishing villages, strange folklore customs, and small tortured trees with branches

Thinking About – The Holy Guardian Angel

I told this story on the blog nearly three years ago, but I've been inspired to tell is again. From that blog: When I was very young I got the Measles. I had a raging fever for a number of days and the doctors were quite worried about

Thinking About – Multiverses

A nice light topic for a Tuesday morning. As is often the case the talking stick session of our local moot has inspired me to write a blog post. Some people go down the pub to relax, watch a bit of Sky Sports on the big screen

Thinking About – Inheriting Magical Items/Paraphernalia

Thinking About – Travelling Gods

Over the years I've had many discussions with friends and seen quite a few talks about the nature of the Gods. One of these is the idea of local deities. For instance in a recent edition of the Down at the Crossroads podcast (thoroughly recommended if you've

Thinking About – The Ouija
