Thinking About – The Harvest Festivals

Take our prayers of thanksgiving, to life and John Barleycorn I love reading other peoples' blogs on the internet and recently two articles came up in my RSS feed that got me thinking. The first was Your Favourite Sabbats (or Sabbats by the Numbers) by Jason

Thinking About – Feeling Overwhelmed in a World Gone Mad

On Monday I sat down in front of my Mac to write an article for my blog. For the first time ever I just found myself staring at the screen and nothing came to mind. Nothing. Every time my fingers hit the keys my mind immediately filled with

Why is the Wheel Turning so Quickly?

Has anyone else felt that this year is going by quicker than any other? A couple of weeks ago I went to see one of my favourite bands Le Vent du Nord at our local arts centre. Man, this has come around quick, I thought, we only saw

Thinking About – Music in the not-so Distant Past

I love the TV program Endeavour. For those who have no idea what I'm talking about Endeavour is the prequel series for the popular TV show from the late 80s/Early 90s Inspector Morse. If you don't know who Inspector Morse is, don't worry, it's not important to

Thinking About – Where the Seasons Begin and End

Thinking About – Doing Druidry/Being a Druid

When I put out the question to readers of the blog what would be the topics you would like me to write about it became obvious that this one was extremely popular. How you fit Druidic practices into daily life. This is a very important question and

Thinking About – Lughnasadh

Lughnasadh (aka Lammas) is one of the 8 festivals that are held within the modern Pagan Wheel of the Year. It marks the first harvest - that being the wheat and barley within the fields that has grown from the green of the Summer Solstice, to the

Thinking About – What and where is Home?

In a global world I'm an Earthling, a human being living upon a blue planet spinning through space. One of about 7.6 billion people who inhabit this wondrous place. I also live in Europe along with around 743 million other people. I live in Great Britain -

Thinking About – There is no separation, you are part of me

Firstly, let me wish you a happy and blessed Solstice. It may be that, like me, you are gazing at a clear blue sky here in the northern hemisphere noticing the clarity of the light on the day of the Summer Solstice. Or maybe you are heading
