And So it goes

This is the post excerpt.

The three principal endeavours of a Bard:

One is to learn and collect sciences;

The second is to teach;

And the third is to make peace

And to put an end to all injury;

For to do contrary to these things

Is not usual or becoming to a Bard.[i]

The series of writing in And So it Goes interrogates Australian culture in the context of family and truthtelling.

The Ides of May

I began blogging in 2013 at ‘For Love of Gaia’ (Homepage)ForLoveofGaia explores the intersections of life experience, culture, religious and spiritual beliefs (spiritual ground), the emerging theories and philosophy of new science, and practice/spiritual matrix (performance, ritual, performance-ritual).  Since them I have extended to writing about ancestral journeys such as,  Elizabeth Pulley Sets Sail and other stories and From Miller to Rope, the Matriarchs as well as uploading the text for the performed elements of my thesis, Centre of the Storm.
