Kidney Day!

There are seldom many days between good reasons to open a bottle of bubbly in our house, and today is the second anniversary of Janet's kidney transplant. This complicated photograph shows her brother in the background, doing the "proper" photograph, while I nick a quickie from the side. Two years! Such a blessing to have... Continue Reading →

Rites of Passage and Passing

I lowered a lovely man into the earth today; an unexpected honour and not a little emotional. Along with a few others, I carried his wicker coffin from the bier on which we had pulled him to his graveside, and gently ran the tapes through my hands as he was accepted back into the land...

Ancestry and GDPR

One of the perennially interesting discussions at Druid Camp is ancestry and the ancestors. Druidry largely concerns itself with relationships of all kinds, with human people and non-human people, with awareness of landscape and season and cycle, but there is a tripartite feature on ancestors that inspires and embraces those relationships. Within (at least, modern)... Continue Reading →

Druid Camp: 5 weeks to go!

 I felt the need to express my gratitude, delight and overwhelming love for all the folk who've stepped up to the challenge of Druid Camp this year. I'm just doing some additions to the profiles pages here http://www.druidcamp.org.uk/category/2018blog/ and it's a delight to see old and new friends preparing for a fabulous camp. Druid Camp - heh,... Continue Reading →

Moving in

Today my old hosting account expired and rosher.me.uk went down. As planned. Also as planned, for now at least, rosher.net still points here, but I've just transferred that domain in to my wordpress.com account. Hopefully, almost transition free, rosher.net will appear here, at incredibish.wordpress.com Of course, I completely overlooked the email accounts that sit within... Continue Reading →

Funerary rites for the solitary

Paganism is an old path, and the old gods have been reverenced for, well, a long time. But in a largely book driven monotheist culture, those walking the experiential ways are still disparate, and nowadays as likely to be connected to community through the Internet as in any physical sense. Yes, we have groves and... Continue Reading →

Chicken Diary – the final chapter

It was a few years after we arrived in Charfield, perhaps 2004, when we started keeping chickens. Today, for now at least, we've stopped. Last night unbeknown to us, Mr Fox paid a visit and murdered our remaining three chooks. He dug in under the chickenwire, crossed the run and got into the coop (through, it... Continue Reading →

Piano accompaniment (update)

Another day another visit to the hospital. Janet's doing fine and her results are slowly improving. Most importantly there seems no immediate danger of serious rejection. Main issues at the moment are inadequate pain relief, but some of that is related to coming off the heavy stuff and the light stuff not doing the biz.... Continue Reading →
