I cannot speak to you, because I am mute. I cannot touch you for I do not have hands to caress you with. My skin is beauty incarnate, Though it is cold from years of forgetting, And dirty from the dust of an unfamiliar land. You do not see how I am in my soul; […]
In the beginning there was an arc of light that lit the heavens that straddled a cosmos too big to comprehend. That arc of light also brought forth thought-forms that strived to become sentient and able to move in ways not yet explored. In the beginning was the one and only thing that could survive […]
Do not knock upon my door! Do not call me by my name! Do you not understand, That I will not leave? This is my home, My soul and all that I am. Go and find your own, For it is you that do not belong. I am Granada; The grain of blood […]
Love is a many tentacled octopus That crawls out of the sea. From the deepest shores of deep blue wild, To consume you whole, And pull you under the velvet dark Of its salt stained folds. To hold you still, against the Rhythm of its wake, As it ebbs and flows over once jagged rocks, […]

I’ve decided that on top of everything else I might as well do the weekly photo challenge. Why not? I love photography, and particularly when I travel I’m constantly snapping away hoping to get that magic shot, or at least inspiration for a piece of artwork. I hope you enjoy my journey and my images.
When I was 25 years old I fulfilled a dream that I’d had since the age of 16. I walked across Spain. My 650 mile journey took me from Pamplona to Santiago de Compostela and onward to Finisterre the furthest point on the Atlantic coast of Galicia in 29 days. Probably the most significant and […]
