On the weekend I woke up at stupid o’clock (aka 5am) to take the drive with my partner in crime to the Avon Valley to take some shots of the town and then go to the Archery Park there.The first stop was the river itself were every year there is the Avon Valley Decent - http://www.toodyay.com/ which is a white water competition. After hiking through many spider webs we were blocked on the path from getting to the actual water so started to head back. We did however find a couple of the eight legged freaks and they were the...

This was something that I was tagged on in Facebook and I thought I would share it. 1). I know where everything that I own belongs, it has a place and it should be back there after it has been used, this tends to drive people crazy but it will literally pull me out of bed at night if I think something is not where it belongs.2). I am a geek, I love Buffy, Star Wars, anything Joss, the movies, my 360 and yes I even own comic books (all be it Buffy Season 8) but still a geek.3)....

Some of the Olympian Gods have more than one card, but the meaning and the art work is different, this does show some depth to the myths surrounding those Gods...

My trusty and compact Panasonic Lumix Camera which I purchased before traveling to Canada in 2007 packed it in a little while back. I had no idea why is was not working well and as always with these things it seemed like perfect timing with my best friends hens night being that week. It was bought for a purpose which it fulfilled and was great to hike with, not too heavy, easy to use and not overly expensive. But you would think when you pay $700 for a camera it would have a life longer than 2 years. I never...

These paintings have been completed for a while now and I finally got around to scanning them and preparing them for upload. Both are water colour and fine liner on water colour paper.

I have commented before about the mirroring that occurs when you are giving a Client a Tarot Reading, in a way the cards are like our relationships, a reflection of what is within. A practise of mine is to journal about the readings I have done, it helps me empty my head, organise my thoughts and allows me to look if there are any themes or information presented that I can personally take into consideration.I was reflecting on a reading I gave to a lovely woman on the weekend. She works in the Health Care profession and had an incident...
