Away with the Druids

I’m not really here. Posts this week were set up a while ago, in a fit of being organised. I am in a field in the Forest of Dean, doing Druid stuff, and next week will no doubt have a veritable ton of things to reflect upon and enough inspiration to keep me blogging for weeks.

In the meantime, here is a flier. It’s not a really real Druid camp flier, even if it is on the website, because in no sane reality would I be the headline at an event like this. It was very kindly made, I think because I’d said that one day, I hope to reach a point in my life and work where I’ve done enough to be worth someone putting on a flier. To be thought warmly of by a friend, and honoured in this way is no small thing, and it was a humbling sort of experience to see this.

In reality, I will be helping out with bits and pieces as needed and generally trying to make myself useful. Just once in a while though, it is nice to be able to pretend, and the fragile ego and hunger for recognition are just things that I have to learn to work with.

    Why do you costly undervalue yourself? None of us would be reading you if you were of so little value.

    Ah, tis a humbling experience to be in a field with luminaries like Kris Hughes and Molly Scott Cato, plus Philip Carr Gomm should have been there – I am continually surprised and delighted by people showing up to read this blog, but also very aware that I am a rather modestly proportioned fish, at most, in a very big pond.
