Story of the Song – Merlin am I

Story of the Song – The Cauldron Born

Many of us will remember that moment. We might have been walking through a woodland, standing on the top of a hill or mountain, seated beside a waterfall, or maybe simply walking in the centre of the city, but something changes. It can be like a second

Thinking About – Consciousness and Panpsychism

Well that's not such a big topic for a blog post is it... I was listening to the Rune Soup podcast the other day. His guest is someone I've heard speak before and I always find his viewpoints fascinating, and that is Dr. Rupert Sheldrake. He was

I go to the Church of Trees

That magnificent nature poem was written by my Bardic Buddy Arthur Hinds and to me sums up in just a few verses the reverence we Druids hold for these beings. If ever I feel upset, or disconnected from my Path, if ever I need to remember what

Thinking About – The Hunter and the Hunted

When I'm out walking there is a sound that I love to hear. It is a sound that was absent in Sussex for many years, and it is the call of the buzzard. Not too long ago I had to get in my car and head west
