Emerging from the Mist…

There’s a certain amount of ‘fighting back’ in this. The long period of Covid restrictions, followed by a summer in which we all got a taste of gentle freedom again; the sad death of the ‘third musketeer’, Sue Vincent, in March of this year; the inability to hold our regular workshops in the mystical landscapes of Britain… But then there were positive things: learning … Read More Emerging from the Mist…

Arnside and Autumn Pastels

At first glance, it has something of the ziggurat about it. In reality it’s the final bit of Arnside’s Victorian pier, taken from a short distance back in order to include part of the famous viaduct – nearly 1600 ft – that links Arnside with Grange-over-Sands. Arnside has the kind of beaches that you’d rather photograph than paddle from. The sands around here share … Read More Arnside and Autumn Pastels

Teasing the imagination: lights

Pictures telling very short stories… Unseen, Craven surveyed the street from the single window of his temporary dwelling. They wouldn’t find him here… Or, rather, there was only one person who would; and she would be warmly expected. Only she would be able to align the pattern of lights to form a visual ladder to him. The others would have tried to kill him. … Read More Teasing the imagination: lights

Gnosis and the Spider

I realise that spiders might be a difficult subject, so, instead of the actual photo of the tiny spider, I’ve used this beautiful image of a web caught in the sunlight from Pixabay. I was spraying wood preserver on our fence. Its a big fence, and cost us a lot of money. Every three years it needs a wood preserver spraying on its entire … Read More Gnosis and the Spider

Teachers called Butterflies

The idea of life after death is a familiar notion. Nothing illustrates the inner and outer principles of this as well as the birth of a butterfly… We’ve all seen it and marvelled. In the rays of the sun, the most exquisite creature emerges from the shrivelled husk of its cocoon, flexes and dries its wings in the warming rays, then changes the place … Read More Teachers called Butterflies

A Union of Opposites (4-final) breathing with Pythagoras

So… how are we going to ‘breathe with Pythagoras’? We will use the 3-4-5 properties of a right-angled triangle, translated into a breathing pattern. As we saw in the previous post, we know these are harmonic, and represent squares. If you followed the symbolism, you will remember that the sequence point-line-surface represents the emergence of the physical world; which is continued by the cubes … Read More A Union of Opposites (4-final) breathing with Pythagoras

Books of Green and Gold

Captured now in golden lightDay’s writing ending with a blazeA tale of green turned brown then goldAs fading Sun shapes dark to holdThese chapters in the nightThese precious children of the days. Enduring Queen of night enfoldsYet only feels, where light revealsWhat softer muse will hold till morningAnd reaching to awaken thisDelivers from her mouth the blissOf summer Sun’s new dawning. ©Stephen Tanham 2021 … Read More Books of Green and Gold
