Welcome to my world!
This website, just like my life, is a work in progress ... and I invite you to share in my exploration.
I hope you enjoy what you discover here; if you are interested in finding out about any of my interests and invitations,
be in touch, won't you?
Acknowledging times and seasons helps, doesn't it? ... Epiphany is upon us
When the star arose
there was much excitement among the gazers
about what it might mean
and how to explain its appearance.
They wanted it named, and claimed.
But our hearts were beating faster
because to us it was captivatingly,
than could be pinned down by definitions
(as if words could tame it!).
What was (visible, predictable, definable, comprehensible)
served only to make us aware of
that was not.
We travelled, we followed, we enquired,
we found the baby.
Our journey took us home; the star faded.
Reports made, case closed.
But our hearts would never again beat without that rush of
that we knew
when we first saw that star,
which redefined with one glimmer of light our life’s meaning.
What captivated us then has continued to elude our rational comprehension
but its wordless and indefinable call
is, still, an insatiable yearning
to seek beyond what can be found,
to gaze through what can be seen,
to ask more than can be answered.
And to worship.
And so we live on
for what was embodied there that day.

Spiritual Director, musician and poet.
What gives depth and delight to life more than finding out who we really are and expressing that in all authenticity? This seems to me to be the reason for our existence, and it is only in relationship with others and with God that this becomes really possible.
But nothing is clear cut, for me, and what you will read about here will, I hope, give as many questions and provocations as answers.
I write about spirituality, prayer, music
and poetry; about nature, creativity, and, well,
Feel free to join me here in exploring heart and voice, and please be in touch!
Spiritual Direction is an invitation to spend time together exploring your innermost (and outward) experiences of life, including your longings, your hopes, your relationships, your ambitions, joys and fears and ... whatever in fact it is that you want to bring to conversation. Together we take "a long loving look at the real', as Walter Burghardt so tenderly put it, which for me includes where body, soul and spirit meet: where God is, whatever that means for you.
But you don't have to be clear about your religious faith (or indeed have any connection with religion at all) to want to seek something spiritually deeper, and you are welcome whatever your background or current practices and interests are.
I am also available to lead retreats and quiet days.
