An Adventure

I'm my last post, I briefly mentioned that I'd been a little overwhelmed and had needed to disconnect. Something that has made a massive difference to how I've been feeling is the sudden planing of a holiday. Having something to focus on and look forward to has lifted my spirits like nothing else. We were... Continue Reading →


I Am Not My Hair

This is my first post in some time. I've been a little overwhelmed... mainly with work stress and needed to retreat a bit. I'm feeling much better now. Right now onto the post. I am a guy with long, greying, curly hair. It's taken me a long time to work out how to tame my... Continue Reading →

The Last Jedi

I have always loved Star Wars. The old films, the new there's something nostalgic to them. They remind me of simpler times. As an adult I really appreciate the concept of "The Force" and the spiritual concepts explored in the stories. I see "The Force" as spirit. The energy that surrounds us and moves through...

It’s getting easier

I love being vegan and there's no part of me that would ever go back to eating omnivorously. It's pretty easy to find things to eat at home and interesting to substitute ingredients in recipes to make familiar favourites. Eating out isn't as easy. In fact, there are times when it can be near impossible... Continue Reading →

A Bad Day

I find the festive season tricky to get through (my Birthday too). I look forward to it; I get excited, and there are lots of lovely enjoyable moments. I appreciate the the gifts I receive and find pleasure in giving to others. However, alongside those good times I carry sadness. It's just below the surface,... Continue Reading →


Part of the reason I started blogging was to hopefully inspire other people to go vegan. I figured that, by gently chipping away, maybe people would begin to see that there are kinder ways to live than the way we are conditioned by society. Not much had changed as far as I was aware but... Continue Reading →


We live in such a crazy world. Constantly, we are bombarded with information: negative, positive, interesting and banal. The internet and social media connects us like never before. It can be wonderful. It can be overwhelming.  Some people take a step back from this flow temporarily and sometimes permanently.  I can understand this retreat; taking... Continue Reading →

Speaking to Autumn

The book "Shamanism: Awaken and Develop the Shamanic Force Within" by Christa MacKinnon inspired me to take another Shamanic journey. I've talked about my first steps in this path previously here and here. Christa suggests communing with the spirit of a place, holiday/festivals and even the seasons. I decided to try and connect with the spirit of Autumn... Continue Reading →

Decorations up in November!

I've always been one  who puts Christmas Decorations up early. I figure it's nice to get your "money's worth" and enjoy them for a longer rather than a shorter period. That said, I've never put my decorations up in November; until now. I put the tree up last week. My major aim being to desensitize... Continue Reading →
