Y Mabinogi – The First Branch, a review

May 25th, 2018 | By

  Over the last decade or so I have been enthralled by the music of Damh the Bard. In my mind he is one of the greatest modern bards to come out of England. Few in today’s musical halls can compare to him. If I were asked to try to come up with a list

In 2018, we don’t expect much to shake us anymore. We’ve seen the Brexit vote, Trump take the White House, and even some of our beloved celebrities taken down. What is left to shake us? In the Pagan World, there is much that can shake us. Some have stepped out and talked about Christian beliefs

Belinda Carlisle, yes that Belinda Carlisle, has released a new CD featuring songs in Hindi and English. Wilder Shores is not her first New Age release, but the first that I heard. She blew me away with this one. Having grown up listening to her music with The Go-Gos (she started her music career with

Over in the United States, where I live, we are preparing celebrate Thanksgiving, a holiday full of food, food, and more food. It is also supposed to be a time to give thanks for what we have – family, friends, and whatever else we are thankful for. Far too often we, Americans at least, have
