Just having a little look around old half finished writings. Found this written about three years ago...
"In getting deeper there is the urge to push towards darkness. Darkness is forboding and unclear, for some it is the underbelly of things stinking and foul. But in claiming dark to be the antithesis of the very angelic white, we show only ignorance of it's truest depth. Darkness is womblike in it’s nurturing. It is in darkness where we recover, regenerate, grow and find deep solitude and solace.
Light has an undeserved reputation as sole host of goodness. Yet light is vapid and evaporating. It shines brightly, briefly and then succumbs to the lull of pitch, it is tempted, shallow and transparent. Light is nothing without it’s lover, the dark. Whereas dark exists irrespective of light. Dark needs nothing, other than perhaps your soul to play with.
As I write this the dark has descended on my home. It is winter and the lack of light swills around me and my family like a close liquid dream, a heaviness is in the air, emotions are mired in, sustained by the chill. My daughter of seventeen months is becoming aware of the contrasts. She will take my hand and lead me to a darkened room, where she will request me to bring light. So I do. But on occasion I take her hand and lead her into that dark, where we play and act as normal, cocooned in shadows, learning, she and I, that dark is not a thing of fear, but necessity "

i just finished my latest book, Dirty and Divine. Its a slice of my life journeyed through by tarot and encouraging the reader to do the same thing. It is far more personal and intimate than I would have liked. I guess for that reason, it makes juicy reading. It covers a particularly dark period of my life. It seems that in agreeing to go on a tarot vision quest, I opened a portal into all thay needed fixing in my lfe. The brew that bubbled up was painful, internal, overdue and yet still, suprising. I had hoped for something very different than what I got. It made me cringe, itbmafr me question my existence, but I wrote about it anyway.
The power of the Tarot, I never doubted. But the way in which they combined with my fortunes to stir some crazy up really took me back. I am still reeling from the implications of that 78 day quest. I can't wait to share that journey with you. At the same time I am dreading sharing that journey with you... it is a spiritual Soap Opera. A soulful love story. A slice of human chaos, death, giggles, snot.
I will keep you updated but fingers crossed it will be published early 2017.
