Tidying up

As the new website is getting its last little tidying up, it’s time to share the last little bits from my old ‘Changeling’ creative website. A few pretty pictures, and one short text. The next time I post, hopefully it’ll all look different around here. [We’ve transfered this blog archive to the new site wholesale] I am the mother. I… Read more →

Butterflies

Big themes collide like icebergs in my thinking this week: ideological clashes; inspirational conversations; memories recalled; histories remade. I give thanks for a new space of solidarity; and to Matthew Remski for supplying the defining thematic for my week – neoliberalism as religion. I’m realising how deep run the threads of hyper-individualism, consumerism, flattened difference and above all, grief and… Read more →

Faery Fortunes

Phil and I are working quite hard behind the scenes here to bring all sorts of new loveliness to this website. So what with that and a couple of conferences, I’ve taken a week or two off the blogging. Here’s a little throwback treasure for you to make up for it. Once upon a misspent youth, I used to carry… Read more →

And at times, my ‘yoga’ practice has more in common with the free movement of… Read more →

Fragments of Family

I’ve spent most of this week writing a 3,000 word submission to Patheos’ upcoming ‘Pagan Consent Culture’ anthology, and now it’s time for another blog post. I also have a space now on the OU site for my own little blog presence as a ‘junior researcher’, so in future some of these posts might appear there. I haven’t really even… Read more →

Braid – a scarf pattern

A little while ago I shared a knitting pattern here (and on Ravelry). That one was a little something fun and easy, called ‘Wavelet on the Bias‘.  What has been really lovely is the number of knitting friends who have waved their own versions of the happy little shawl at me when I’ve popped round. It’s been made in all… Read more →

Summer’s End

They say that those who do not know their history are bound to repeat it. I say bring it on. Time is not an arrow or an unfolding road, ever relentless, ever marching onwards. Time soars in loops and spirals and endless waves, like the true, delighted flight of crows on the wind. Time, like history, needs the subtle patterning… Read more →
