The Void and The Density

The Void and The Density

This ‘moonth’ has seen an unprecedented level of creativity, even for me. Three podcasts, three new ambient tracks and one guided meditation just popped out of nowhere. More specifically they came from the Void to the Density with me as the conduit. This...
Starting a ‘Wave

Starting a ‘Wave

When you haven’t written a book, getting it actually published can seem like a bit of a mountain to climb. When you do get it published, it can appear like another bigger and harder mountain appears – and that’s to tell people about it and to get...
A Gift That Keeps on Giving

A Gift That Keeps on Giving

Just over 10 years ago, I published my first non-fiction book called Blocks. To accompany it, I created a set of meditations. Little did I know then that would lead me down a completely different path. This month, my meditations reached the 2.3 million listens point...
Finding a Way

Finding a Way

While I have been busy creating the Soulwaves book itself, I have consciously done nothing about publishing it, other than to observe what is happening in the industry. So rather than me having to find the way to get it published, I’ve been allowing the paths to...

Fifteen books later, the book I started first has finally been written – and narrated. It’s now off for typesetting as this blog gets published. The day after the book is done and it’s now kind of out of my hands, it’s almost like missing an...

Artwork by Siri Stiklestad Opli The month of August has become a big handle turning exercise. September augurs more of the same. The reason being is that 35 of the 100 chapters of Soulwaves are now narrated. I make no bones about it, it is a huge task and big ask,...
Two Million Listens

Two Million Listens

Several blogs ago I set my stall our to post once a month as a bread crumb trail of what was going on in my life – the original purpose and format for a blog perhaps. Something happened at the start of this month which means I should break with this tradition...
Re-tyre-ment

Re-tyre-ment

Now I should state that I am really not a fan of Formula 1. To me the prospect of watching paint dry is more compelling. That said, I am a big fan of analogy and metaphor and the concept of taking a pit stop and changing tyres for a new road ahead seemed to be very...

Cogs Are Turning

This month I did something I have never done before in the middle of a big project. I took a month off. Well not exactly, I packed up a house I’d lived in for 20 years and had a week’s holiday on a wide beam 64 foot long canal boat on the Kennet & Avon.Part...
