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

A Little bit of Lughnasadh Magic
