2011 New Hampshire Highland Games, part two, The Music

When I first started listening to “Celtic Rock” music, there were two bands that made up most of my “must have” list – Seven Nations and Brother.  Just as I discovered Seven Nations, Neil Anderson was leaving to do his own thing and I while I have always considered him a top-shelf piper, I never cared for his singing voice and sometimes felt he really couldn’t carry a tune.  So, I pretty much ignored him until the first time I heard his current band,

2011 New Hampshire Highland Games, part one, The Games

For several years now I’ve heard about the

New Hampshire Highland Games and Loon Mountain.  This year I finally had an opportunity to attend the games and it was quite a pleasant experience for a great number of reasons.

Initially, my interest was in being at “Loon” for the sake of seeing something new.  There are exactly three Celtic festivals in my area annually and none of them is held on a mountain.  Plus, I’ve never been farther north than Rhode Island and that was…

Walking Meditation


I’ve been increasingly interested in meditation for various reasons (spiritual exploration, to help with concentration, connecting mind and body, learning something new…), but one thing I hadn’t thought about was bringing a clarity and calmness of mind that…

“So inept at twisted words and crooked deeds, it was if I slept and dreamt” a line from Edna St.Vincent Millay's poem “I forgot for a moment.” To most these words seem as a reference to a sweet peaceful dream world. However, to people who have come, face to face, with true soul ripping fear, any type of actual sleep is better than a living nightmare. Vincent is referring to a…

Dear Me at 18

Dear Me at 18,

Creative Writing Challenge: Letter to my 18 year old self

Dear Me,


I know this will seem a bit odd, but I'm you from the future with some words of advice. First of all, Happy 18th Birthday! Secondly, Randy is going to show up. Maybe you should wear a better outfit. ;) Enjoy your party at the house tonight. But, after that, it's time to start getting down to business. You're just about done with your G.E.D., good for you. But, I think you need to get the ball rolling on your college applications. The way things stand right now,…
