Community is about relationship, and in general we think of communities as groups of people - human, non-human - living closely together. Nowadays of course (well, for humans) that doesn't always mean living within a readily definable geographic space. Many of our communities are disparate and physically unidentified, with the relationship existing mainly or solely... Continue Reading →

Leave only footprints…

I came away from Druid Camp knowing the site was in use again the following week for Super Spirit. As we left, we made sure we left the site in good order. That's a part of finding relationship with a place. Now that Super Spirit too has ended, I've come across a photograph of the... Continue Reading →

Arsenal (not the team) part two

Inevitably, I was going to shave the plug end. If you have no idea what I'm waffling on about (join the club) then click here. So, a little judicious filing away of the black plastic and wala... whalla... oua'la... how on earth does one spell voilà!? 😉 I've kept nuclear power stations on the bars with short...

Arsenal (not the team) part one

So after Kickstarting this little box of tricks what feels like a long time ago, I recently got notification of despatch. This is a first thoughts review of Arsenal: The Intelligent Camera Assistant. The main web site for this is https://witharsenal.com/ I guess the first thing to note, and a key factor in what might be... Continue Reading →

Within (at least, modern)... Continue Reading →

Druid Camp 2018

So here I am, home again from Druid Camp. A simple name for a complex community gathering, and one I've been going to for around twenty years now. This year, for the first time, because of (well) stuff, I've been directly involved in it all as part of the core team, alongside Mark Graham. But... Continue Reading →

Activism, Druidry and Mission Lifeforce

Mission Lifeforce   (a post drafted on the incredibish blog for use in the Druid Camp discussion forum)The wonder of Druid Camp is the range of experience and learning that is freely shared and gifted to and by the community. From healers to singers to writers to dancers to... everything. Once again I particularly loved... Continue Reading →

Lammas tide

So here we are at Lammas, or Lughnasadh if you like... 1st August and the first of the three pagan harvest festivals. Only the weather has been a tad chaotic recently and in many ways it doesn't feel this is the moment. That's the trouble with the otherwise fabulously convenient six weekly pagan festivals, it...

Unsocial Media

There's something unsociable about social media that doesn't want to share... Just had an email from WordPress to tell me that Facebook will be shutting off the sharing function from WordPress to Facebook, which I use to share my blog posts on the Facebook profile. It's possible that will impact my account at Blipfoto too,... Continue Reading →
