why I write

Druidry is one of many threads that form the fabric of my life; the “golden thread,” if you like.  This is where I follow it, sometimes unpicking, sometimes elaborating, always celebrating.

As an inititated Awenydd of the Anglesey Druid Order, I have made a commitment to honour and celebrate the sacred landscape of this island, and to carry the inspiration of its lessons with me in everything I do.

The Druid Network has been my most enduring source of inspiration and learning and, although my involvement with the network has waxed and waned over the years, their website is always the first resource I would recommend to anybody interested in contemporary druidry.  I am also in the loosest of affiliations with the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, and confess a love of the rich liturgy of Celtic literature they have collected.  My earliest encounter with druidry was decidedly non-pagan, but no less magical for that, though I have all but given up hope of recovering my mamiaith to the point of being a cultural, as well as a pagan, druid.

In everyday life, I am an amateur folklorist, an archivist-in-training, and a lover of riverbanks, shorelines and liminal spaces.

And I suppose, if you are reading this, I am a blogger.

Enjoy.
