I haven't updated this site, or had time to blog, for nine months. A lot has happened since then and now seems as good a moment as any other to begin the slow catchup. 

I know that there seems to be an 'Official Day' for everything now, but this is one we should all get...

Last week there was an eclipse and a new moon. There was a cool, rich, sharp darkness bedecked with hard stars and a distant sense of a new season being imminent. Into this flawless  backdrop walked Mikes' Pearson and Brookes, for the National Theatre of Wales, with 'S...

The other week, I was asked if I wanted to go and see a play aboutBlodeuwedd. Of course, I said yes - especially when I saw that it was an adaptation of Saunders Lewis' 'Woman of Flowers'. I decided to retain just that information alone though, having quite enough of a...

On February 9th, 2018, I attended 'Beyond My Control', a performance about epilepsy, at Aberystwyth Arts Centre.

Well, that's not quite true. It wasn't about epilepsy, as such, it was a performative explanation of the latest research into the mathematical modelling of e...

'Two Kings, After Frost'

Two Kings, they met by a medieval motte

Leaving their bodies behind.

One was as tall as the sun was fair,

And had pe...

Before 1752, the new year in Wales was celebrated on the 25th March; e.g. the 24th March 1700 was followed by the 25th March 1701. Of course, this roughly coincides with the Equinox (and the 'original' Hebrew new year and also that which is celebrated in Iran). It was...

On November 3rd 2017, 'Layers in the Landscape' had its second exhibition. This time we forayed south to Lampeter, taking position in the cloisters of OB ('Old Building').  This was no small challenge because it is a much underused exhibition space, in that, to my know...

This is simply a short blog, on the shortest day, to mark the Winter Light.
