Tira and the bees

This post is long, but I make no apologies for that. Some things are too important, and too epic, to contain in a pithy article. Indeed, this is a very different blog post to my normal offering. But there is story here, and beauty, and so I suggest that you settle in, with a long drink by your side. There… 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. There are clustered homes and circled wagons and there are gateways and gatekeepers. There are feuding tribes and border disputes and common land. There are strange beasts, and fae lords and… Read more →

Colourfest

I’m realising how deep run the threads of hyper-individualism, consumerism, flattened difference and above all, grief and… Read more →

Community Enterprise

I blog a lot about inequality and fairness. On a related note, today I want to talk about money. Personally, I live comfortably, modestly but with a certain amount of insecurity. I have education, health, and a husband who earns a fair, if uncertain amount of money. We have no children to support, and honestly, we probably wouldn’t be able… Read more →

Vision Quests and Sacred Sites

Home safe from the Rainbow Futures DruidCamp. It is the camp’s 13th year, my 9th camp and my 3rd year helping Mark Graham run the event. I’m so blessed to have him to run around and make mischief with, along with the whole team who make it happen, and a growing tribe without which there would be no point to… Read more →
