Choosing life: Jig of Life and the Ninth Wave

“For Now does ride in on the curl of the wave,

And you will dance with me in the sunlit pools.

We are of the going water and the gone.

We are of water in the holy land of water

And all that’s to come runs in

With the thrust on the strand.” Continue reading

New synapses, old synapses

I’ve had a growing feeling all year long that the exercise in social distancing has been some sort of externalised manoeuvre of growing new synapses. The more the old haunts of my daily walks closed off, became inaccessible or had too many people suddenly launched into them, the more I discovered new places, often right beneath the very eyes of where I used to pass by but never noticed the subtle entrance to pathways into enchanted woods that have turned out to be new-favourite walks.

Today, I spotted this beauty on the 24 year anniversary of my mother transitioning from this world; she was always the queen of the four leaved clover, finding them, with ease, wherever she went. I never could… Exactly 22 years … Continue reading

The unmistakable lightening of days

Let me take you on a walk through a city; am impromptu Imbolc ceremony with a difference. No green pasture this, no village tree surrounded by fields…but, rather, pavements cracked with gold that speak of new beginnings. As ever, my … Continue reading

Shared roots and scattered seeds

Collaborative music is one of my biggest passions; the feeling of it goes way beyond the lyrics or the tune and becomes a harmonic of happy coincidences, dismantled wall and powerful juxtapositions. The heart gets recruited, first…not as a cerebral afterthought…when such rhythms are unleashed. It’s a whole-sensory experience, beyond the boundary lines of culture or genre. How I long for the experience to be shared by so many more people; for them to be stirred up from their slumber and to feel what we all find so hard to give form to, as yet, in this world… Continue reading

Going “nowhere”, reaching beyond “the point”

A potent place on the so-called “road to nowhere”…a life review…and an opportunity to realise the astonishing power of even the most a subtly altered perspective.

All this and more from a serendipitous revisit to a place that seemed to draw me back there…no arguing! Continue reading

A fairy tale for our times…and, of course, a new ending

We have been told an old old (old) story so many times before that, even when a new version comes along, we think its still the same story…or do we? And is it? Not when seen through new fifth-dimensional “eyes”. Join me in looking at one of the most popular stories of the moment through these very eyes… Continue reading

In balanced places and quantum spaces…

Yes, a second post for the day…closely related to the last one but also quite the stand-alone account of a special place that I visited a few days ago, where I came across both ancient and contemporary hints of quantum resurrection well underway… Continue reading
