That was a fabulous weekend. Our annual pilgrimage to Cornwall for the Pagan Phoenix South West conference held at a holiday centre just outside of Bude. Some of you may know I was born in Cornwall and have a deep connection to the land that made my

Well, my friends, it's nearly here. If you are a regular reader of the blog you'll know it was my intention, after releasing the Second Branch album, to write an album of music, but that was not to be. The Third Branch picks up from the moment

The Old One was Here Early

A blessed release from the week's rain but the chalk still wet underfoot. Slippery too, as we walked along the old track to the South Downs. A blue sky battling with scattered clouds, and rooks sharing their wisdom on the wing, calling to those walkers below that

Y Mabinogi – The Third Branch – The Songwriting Begins

Y Mabinogi – The Third Branch – the Spoken Word is Done!

A Little bit of Lughnasadh Magic

Back at the Spring Equinox 2000 me and Cerri founded the Anderida Gorsedd. It was simply to be a group that took on the responsibility for holding regular open rituals on the flat hill below the Long Man of Wilmington. There had of course been open rituals
