Welcome to my little island in the online world. Relax, kick off your shoes & have a look around.
I started 2015 with a winter holiday on La Palma in the Canary islands. See what I got up to in my Postcards from La Palma
Life in a small town can be delightfully quirky - the town bridge was closed for about
four minutes to allow the Shrove Tuesday pancake race to be run over it.
Zippy (in the yellow suit) was the clear winner this year.
I played another gig with the Rhythm Methodists in February, back in St Margarets Hall
which is barely two minutes walk from my front door. Just as well as I was worn out from
13 hours travelling back from La Palma the night before and felt like I'd picked up a bug
on my travels which left me even lower below par. Still, with the help of my amazing
bandmates we put on another performance that had the dance floor packed & bouncing.

Progress has been slow at my new home in the new year but things are still creeping forward.
The march of time:
When my new trainers arrived I realised that there was a new model number each time I got around to buying a new pair (those ones in the middle are 623's).
As the new year dawns I've looked back at 2014 and written my regular review of my year. It's been quite a big one!
Looking back at the year I've decided to retrospectively send some Postcards from Madeira.
I'm back from a week-long trip to Taroudant, southern Morocco, where I taught a Circle Dance workshop and enjoyed an African holiday in the sun (mostly). While I was too busy to write a blog I did manage to pen some Postcards from Morocco.
After writing about my Moroccan holiday I was inspired to go back to my previous visit and belatedly write some more Postcards.
While packing for my forthcoming house move I found an old recording from the mid-2000's, a demo of one of the long, drifting pieces I was composing & performing at that time. Listening to it again brought back a host of memories from what was a period of huge upheaval for me, you can read about how these compositions helped me go through it in Soundscapes of Isolation.
