bardic tribal shamanic jongleur..
I walk a path in the forest one foot in this reality and one foot in the Dreamtime. I drum the heart and play the soul with wind and beat. My ritual is my words and my music as well as my humor. My altar is the instruments I play as the muse works through me. My comments might seem glib and dry and fanciful even challenging for they drift on the wind from inside and from my muse.
How did you hear about Pagan-Place
Who am I
I walk a path that began in Australia and is tied into the land and the energies and feelings that blows and flows with that land. I love the water and sometimes think I swam before I walked.
I also love the bush (forest). Quite often I went walkabout.
I travelled and lived in Japan amidst the temples and the people. I have visited the home country of Scotland and England as well as New Zealand.
I now live in America and am rediscovering my muse, my music, my spirit.

As I tend to act puckish on occassion.. hehe.
If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumber'd here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend:
if you pardon, we will mend:
And, as I am an honest Puck,
If we have unearned luck
Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue,
We will make amends ere long;
Else the Puck a liar call;
So, good night unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends.

One of my challenges is to find a easy and simple way to record my music.

So is slowly getting used to this job. Got some new shoes so hopefuly the feet and everything else wont hurt as much. As I said in a previous blog having a non mind job does have benefits in that my creativity is just wanting to come out on my days off after i get over the exhaustion.
Has my day off today,
Sometimes it is amazing when you are put in a different path which requires a different focus.
I needed to shut off my mind and creativity and FOCUS to do a particular task in a high pressure time based situation.
This is a new job and in a sense it is after a ...
One must remember that Roald Dahl the author of many books not just Charlie and the Chocolate factory had a particular feel to his books.
I LOVE the original Willy Wonka because of Gene Wilder YET it was not really true to the books energy and flavor.
The remake was actually VERY accurate to the books flavor and essence and I think that everyone attached the original MOVIE to the book.. and forgot that Charlie and the CHocolate factory was a very dark and twisted story.
IF I had to say which movie I liked the best. OH the original DEFINITELY. however If I was to say which movie was more accurate to the book I would say THe 2005 remake.
Tim Burton has a flavor .. and in my eyes was the one who originally placed the Dark in the dark knight. (batman).
Seraphin as your awareness changes and your perception changes as you walk your path . you are more sensitive and notice things that you did not notice before. it is good to be skeptical and ask and test and question.. yet also it is good to accept and go with the flow.
I do not know your spiritual path nor what you mean by craft. yet I found that the more I got in touch with my spiritual path which is a tribal based system I was more aware of the wind, the sun, the rain, the earth , the water and heat and fire around me as well as other things.
Remember too that your imagination will try and fill gaps to make sense of things to your mind so sometimes it does not get it correct and tries to fill in the gaps and does not get it right all the time.

Traditionally there are 5 senses in which we perceive our world.
However I believe that we have one dominant sense that we use that resounds over the others. ( Yes you guessed it mine is hearing). What is your MAIN sense the one that colors your world, that makes it BRIGHT, that TOUCHES your soul that TASTES like wonder or SMELLS like ambrosia.
Some of us can tightly couple a second sen
