I feel curious about the ordinary things that so often go unnoticed. There is so much beauty and wisdom waiting to be discovered in the everyday things around us. I love the way folklore weaves a special kind of magic amongst these ordinary moments and provides a way to understand and capture our own stories.

I've created this website primarily as a way of recording my own explorations of folklore, mythology, nature, art, and philosophy. I find it helpful to create a map of the discoveries along the way, and if this is of interest to anyone else then that's an added bonus. Please check out the Bookshelf for recommended books, magazines, websites and articles. I'm on Twitter regularly and participate in #FolkloreThursday each week. If your'e looking for visual inspiration I'm also on Pinterest and Instagram now and then.
