A few thoughts about luck…

Originally this post appeared on Facebook. It would be a pity though, to allow it to disappear into the long timeline with all the other stuff I add in there, I thought. After all, as you can see, this is more of a blog post really. So here goes… Today I give thanks for all […]

2016 The Year Ahead

  I have to admit that I am always a little wary of the new year. I suppose it’s cowardice really, a fear of what is to come. By that strain of thought, I ought to fear mornings (I don’t – I’m very much a ‘morning’ sort of person) or even weekends. Or the start […]

Witchfest International 2015

Back in the day, whenever I blogged about Witchfest, it was usually a day or two afterwards. Nowadays, it’s over a week later. I am shattered, no other word for it.   However, my health – or lack of it – apart, it really was a splendid Witchfest. I think it must have been one […]

Autumn season of spiders….

Facebook is creaking under the weight of so many oversized randy male spiders running around people’s houses just lately.  Here in Penry Land we had our own monster and heaven knows where he’s got to since I resisted the urge to attack him with a couple of bricks, but instead turned out the light and […]

I’d forgotten…

Birthdays are a good time to remember, so they say.  I certainly woke up this morning and mentally went backwards through a variety of happy returns, remembering them. Sometimes it’s all too easy to forget, but it only takes a small adjustment to make us remember again, and for me it’s been a bit like […]

Weather forecasts and the spiritual path

Wednesday. Today. ‘Hottest day of the year!’ the papers screamed in advance. Some went even further. ‘Wednesday will be the hottest day ever!’ Many newspapers offered advice on how to ‘survive’ and how to ‘stay alive’. And today? It’s about 19C (65F) in my garden. It’s cold, cloudy. And raining. So what’s my point? Well, […]

What is a garden?

Poets and writers – let alone gardeners! – have tried for centuries to describe their perfect garden.  It isn’t easy, but at least they’ve tried, and in the process created some wonderful, lyrical work.  Not so some would-be arbiters of taste, whose idea of the perfect garden seems to be gravel, more gravel, astro-turf and […]

Cornflakes, Doors and a Cap full of S***

How did your day begin?  Mine was not good.  Well, I’ve certainly known better.  At breakfast I cut my gum on a cornflake due to a combination of missing teeth and bad gums (caused by some of the meds I take).  And then, after breakfast, I managed to jam my fingers in the door.  Not […]

The Real Meaning of ‘Easter…’

I first blogged this (true) story back in about 2007 I think, but every so often I am overwhelmed with the desire to blog it again.  Because there is really nothing quite like it, I feel.  At least, not in my experience, I’m pleased to say.  For this is a tale that nobody could ever […]

The Legend of the Spiderwight

Yesterday (Sunday) I posted on Facebook that I thought there was a Spiderwight in the outside loo. (Only I wrote Spiderwiht instead – sorry for any confusion… fingers had a mind of their own, methinks.) Anyway, I promised I would write some more about this fascinating creature.   To begin with, our outside loo has […]
