Horses are the love of my life. I have had several but now have just two. To me horses are natures greatest gift to the natural world and over millenia have evolved to have a very special relationship with humans. Unfortunately, this inate sensitivity is often overlooked and even misunderstood and it has been my aim, with my own horses, to develop this sensitive relationship through patience and the practice of agility games, using requests rather than commands. I never use a bit nor shoe my horses and mostly I ride bareback. If you like horses I think you may like these pages.
I love all animals but birds have always been a source of undying fascination for me. I produced this page for myself as a learning tool. It shows most of the birds I've spotted in Perthshire so far, the most recent addition being the Kite which is now breeding here in the wild. Click on a bird and the pop up window shows more pictures and plays the birds song. It's a fun page and we've often played "Guess the Bird" from the song.
I am a keen amateur photographer and never want to waste the opportunity of getting that perfect shot of the incredible landscape that I am blessed to witness every day of my life. And though most of the time capturing that beauty on camera eludes me I cannot resist trying. But no camera is more sophisticated than, nor can see like the naked eye. To live with such beauty on my doorstep fills me with awe and gratitude. Here is a selection of my pictures.
Prana or the "life-force" is what vanishes when a person dies, leaving a gross body, and withdraws within when one sleeps. This life-force, from where everything is formed and created, is reachable, awake-able and important for an individual's body-mind health, and how one relates to other people and all living entites in one's life. The Chakras are traditionally considered meditation aids, and the journey of spiritual ascent begins in the root and rises to and through the highest Crown energy portal. This provides the opportunity to realise the greater connection to all things, and to experience ubiquitous assimilation with all-embracing, unconditional Love.
