What links sacred sites, ancient and modern? Are the clues all around us? Do the keys to heaven lie hidden in the earth or are there keys to earth hidden in the heavens? Where earth and time and heavens meet Look to the dragons’ soaring might To seek the…

Seasons turn

Eight o’clock in September and it is dark. It is really quite strange when that transition from summer to autumn makes itself felt so pointedly. It begins with an almost unseen change in the quality of the green leaves as they edge towards turning, then it is…

Women in the Mist (2)

  (Continued from Part One on Sun in Gemini) The rain has abated… for now. After the morning of the second day, we return to East Aquorthies to have more revealed to us by our guide, Allan. The morning had contained a visit to another stone circle which had drained and saddened us all. The…

Women in the Mist (1)

It was wet in the stone circle; so wet that Allan, our guide to the ancient monuments of this wonderful part of North-East Scotland, remarked that his belly-button was actually ‘filling up with water’. The comment has been immortalised in Silent Eye history, and songs about it will will be sung around soggy campfires in…

Magical Man at the Dawn of Science

The Elizabethan age considered itself scientific, indeed the word ‘science’ was used to mean ‘knowledge’. The so called Age of Reason was a much later term applied by historians of science to broad-brush the slow ascent of experimental-based knowledge. What we now call science originated from the attempts to separate the observer from the method…

Vertical disintegration

I hope I hide it well…but that can be a dangerous and naive presumption. I’m at my best when convergent; and yet the divergent part is essential to the inclusiveness of the creative process. I’m rambling on in a manner that is plainly self-indulgent, so let me explain… It’s what I’ve come to think of…

Night Nomads

It’s two and you, two dogs and it The hidden light that powers the grit Of rubber spinning in the night ➰ Beneath the blazing arc-lights’ cold No warmth escapes the darkened scold Of coffee, burgers, brands unsold ➰ But we, Night Nomads, are unclean As hounds, will reave your tables, mean, With hunger and…
