My books

I have written three series of spiritual fantasy novels/novellas: The Isles Beneath the Moon series (5 books, a loosely-linked series with a few characters carrying on, events of one book inform the next, etc.), The Bird-Mage Trilogy (same characters carry on; 3 books, a different world to the other series), and The Caer Anwen Chronicles … Continue reading My books

Well met! A Welcome Greeting to all!

Croeso, Tervetuloa, Välkommen, Wilkommen, Failtè and Welcome!  (Welsh, Finnish, Swedish, German, Scots Gaelic - if you know already, well done!) I've got a feeling (funny things, feelings…) that this blog of mine is going to expand and evolve (endless forms most beautiful, maybe?) quite beautifully over time, as the things I think of, (and sometimes … Continue reading Well met! A Welcome Greeting to all!

Rides! Updated and improved, with two new ones, too!

Ride of the Moon Riders: This begins on the Aegean coast of Turkey within sight of the island of Lesbos. Turn North and skirt Mount Ida (what is the modern name?) and cross the River Scamander (what is the modern name?) to ride near to Hisarlik (ancient Troy). Then ride North-East across the country to … Continue reading Rides! Updated and improved, with two new ones, too!

Freedom, and the nature of “mandatory” and “obligatoire”

I think that a lot of people haven’t really looked up the true meaning of mandatory and the French “obligatoire” — it isn’t that you have to, it’s that people want you to and are inviting you to.

Ascension and Truth

Ascension: becoming more light, moving into heart-cantered consciousness and away from the ego-mind. Becoming a being of Light as one truly is, unity consciousness, open-hearted peace, love, and joy in a fifth-dimensional way in place of third-dimensional fear and division. Labels, especially labelling people in certain ways, is a 3D concept to foment division and … Continue reading Ascension and Truth

Ride of the Moon Riders and another ride, a very long one.

Ride from roughly where old Troy was (opposite the Dardanelles; Hisarlik in modern Turkish), through Turkey (Well Northern Cappadocia, actually), crossing first the River Scamander, then the River Thermois, then the River Thermodon (now called the Terme) and near-ish to the coast up through the Caucasus to finish by the Sea of Azov on the … Continue reading Ride of the Moon Riders and another ride, a very long one.

On tradition and the nature of gluttony

Something that comes up for me at every modern festival in the year, is why is there this attachment to the consumption of more than one’s insides can hold comfortably? Why this gluttony, particularly of sweet and rich and fatty and dead things, merely because the collective consciousness is slow to change from the old … Continue reading On tradition and the nature of gluttony
