Wild Ones

Back in May I wrote a post asking about radical and deliberate connections with deity – the wild and wondrous gods of protest and resistance. What would they look like? Who would they be? What would their sacraments be? Then followed a really lovely series of conversations on social media and in person, and a lot of people’s personal stories… Read more →

Here be dragons…

Here be dragons. There are edges and centres, known and unknown spaces to this map. There are braided desire paths, and wild, deep forests, and high walls and highways.

This will sound strange if you are aware how many social misfits, outcasts and outsiders of one kind… Read more →

Stones and Trees

The thing about working from photographs is that the images for me are multilayered with associations about spaces and times. I can smell the summer in some of these… Firstly, an old set fooling… Read more →

Peace at what price?

This week, I’ve been contemplating the differences between peace as an individual endeavour and as a communal project. My thinking isn’t quite clear, but it’s Thursday, and Thursday is blogging day, and like many writers, I think best sometimes whilst writing, so let’s take that journey to clarity together. “We swear by peace and love to stand Heart to heart… Read more →
