A Findhorn Farewell

Recently I attended  a regular Findhorn ritual—a leaving meditation. This is not only an opportunity for the one leaving to say goodbye, it is also a conscious act of stepping out of one phase of life into another. It marks an important event and assists the one leaving to disconnect energetically from the passing phase and… Continue reading A Findhorn Farewell

The Strangeness of Eclipses

All the attention given to the recent solar eclipse has got me thinking about the phenomenon in general. This particular eclipse is spectacular —at 6 minutes and 39 seconds in some places, it’s the longest this century. There is something really awe inspiring about a total solar eclipse—the darkness falling in the middle of the… Continue reading The Strangeness of Eclipses

Pipex Part 3: Just when you thinks it’s safe to come out…..

You know those horror films when it’s five minutes to the end and all the creepy things have been destroyed and the good people are hugging in the  sunshine, and then…..the claw-like hand emerges from the freshly dug grave. Oh the shock… That was kind of my feeling when the post arrived yesterday. For those… Continue reading Pipex Part 3: Just when you thinks it’s safe to come out…..

Pipex Part 2: The story is over —with a little animal help

A knock on the door —a heavy knock that means business, one that cannot be ignored—caught my attention this morning. This is it, I think, The Summons. Pipex have finally carried out their threat to take me to court. It turned out to be a Jehovah’s Witness who gave me a leaflet about how to… Continue reading Pipex Part 2: The story is over —with a little animal help

Pipex Part 1: A horrid tale of an evil phone service provider

Sometimes you just have to rant—the soul demands it. My rant today concerns Pipex, a dreadful and possibly fraudulent telecommunications company. The general level of customer service is incredibly low in this industry and complaints about it are all too common but Pipex stands out from the crowd for it’s appalling standards. I must add… Continue reading Pipex Part 1: A horrid tale of an evil phone service provider

Politically Incorrect Food

Breakfast this morning was a slice of Galia melon and a bowl of muesli with milk. It wasn’t as nice as it should have been. The melon was ripe and juicy but at the same time strangely grainy and without much flavour. Not at all the crisp and refreshing sweetness that I associate with melon.… Continue reading Politically Incorrect Food
