Pythia – Deep #writephoto

My offering for Sue's Thursday Photo Prompt Deep #writephoto is a return journey to the Oracle at Delphi. A place mysterious, awe-some and a little terrifying. The answers being sought are always couched in unclear and misleading language. To give the true answer would change destinies and the mouth piece of the Goddess cannot interfere in human…Read more Pythia – Deep #writephoto

Bridge of Sighs by Jan Malique #writephoto

My contribution to Sue's photo prompt this week sees the return of an old, em, youngish old friend Little Troll. Like many trolls he lives under a bridge in a tardis like home but that’s where the similarity ends. He’s not a typical example of his kind, what troll has refined tastes in food, literature…Read more Bridge of Sighs by Jan Malique #writephoto

Ignis – Flame#writephoto

Sue’s writing challenge this week gave me a good kick up the bottom, in the nicest sense I have to say! The creative fires needed stoking, they craved an injection of oxygen. My enthusiasm for writing had been waning for a while, it happens now and again and nothing to worry about. As for the…Read more Ignis – Flame#writephoto

“How Art Thy Fallen From Heaven” – Lantern #writephoto

Image: Sue Vincent After much deliberation I present my offering for Sue's Thursday Photo Prompt Lantern #writephoto. It may appear a little incomprehensible but therein lies fun and mayhem. The idea was bubbling away in the depths of a mind fogged by flu remedies, emerging triumphantly on wings of smoke and gold. My meditation upon…Read more “How Art Thy Fallen From Heaven” – Lantern #writephoto

Conversation with the Jackal Shaman: In the Hall of Ma’at and Weighing of the Heart Ritual

White Rabbit looks into the distance, deep in thought. The Jackal Shaman and I watch him. Rather than break the silence we converse in signs and symbols. You may well ask how that’s achieved. Pens and pieces of card. Neither mystical nor magical. Or is it? Ancient sigils imbued with mystery and knowledge, they open…Read more Conversation with the Jackal Shaman: In the Hall of Ma’at and Weighing of the Heart Ritual

Conversation with the Jackal Shaman: In The Hall of Ma’at and Introductions

photo credit: israel gutier The way to the color via photopin (license) The Jackal Shaman crosses the great expanse to bring word of further challenges. Must be something important for him to make this long journey. Our encounters of late have been brief but meaningful. Dear reader, this ancient Egyptian god is not to be…Read more Conversation with the Jackal Shaman: In The Hall of Ma’at and Introductions

Forged in Fire

Here we are then, again, facing another year. (Puts on best imitation of Jedi Master, Yoda) challenging it was, unsure we were. I’m determined to review the old year in a frame of mind that’s open and honest. The spirit has been unburdened considerably but there is more to ‘surgery’ to undergo. For this purpose…Read more Forged in Fire

Fog -#writephoto

This is my response to this week’s Thursday Photo Prompt, Fog - #writephoto.  I offer you a brief look at the lives of ordinary inhabitants of the Greenwood. They, like us ‘hoomans’ lead quite mundane lives. Shopping, paying bills, crying at ‘romcoms’, attending festivals and getting inebriated. On this occasion there’s an important gathering in progress, the…Read more Fog -#writephoto

Creation – Cracked Ice #writephoto

My response to Sue's Thursday Photo Prompt Cracked Ice. I return once again to the realms of fire and ice to face Odin and see creation unfold. Creation of the Cosmos and more. Or is it just a dream?  Does any of this make sense?  Seek beneath the surface dear Reader. Odin, what say you on the…Read more Creation – Cracked Ice #writephoto

Lux Anglicae – Mystery #writephoto

Here is my offering for Sue’s Thursday Photo Prompt Mystery #writephoto. The Muses of creativity have been sparing with their favours lately, a fact that has frustrated and puzzled this blogger. Until now. I shall reserve judgment, no need to attract hubris you understand. What says the Alchemist? These are the Dragons and Serpents which the…Read more Lux Anglicae – Mystery #writephoto
