I asked Moon Books for a copy of this seasonally appropriate book and it arrived yesterday. Since it was snowing and freezing yesterday, I went to bed early and had a read.

For those of you that haven’t realised yet, I’m a polytheist, that is I believe in and worship many gods. I’m quite comfortable with this although I get that some people might find it a) odd or b) confusing. Or both.Continue reading “2nd August 2015”
Funny things happen in my brain at six in the morning; it’s a fairly regular occurrence so I’m not too worried. For the last week or so my brain has been working on a concept of life, or more precisely the effect of humanity on other life on Earth.Continue reading “Dance”
It’s that time of year again boys and girls; inevitable trips to crowded malls and rammled shops. I hate it.
Today the North Pole will be as far from the Sun as it gets. It is Winter Solstice here in the Northern Hemisphere. Continue reading “Winter Solstice”
