Saturday Chaos and Nonsense

I haven't written one of these for a long time. Why? Life, writing hard to finish Wisp 3 edits and start Wolfe Manor 2, life, but more than all those listed above; lack of confidence in myself and abilities. Now I don't like feeling vulnerable, I have enough mental health conditions without new ones knocking … Continue reading Saturday Chaos and Nonsense

Sunday Book Review – Bearing the Unbearable by Dr. Joanne Cacciatore

dgkayewriter.com shares her review of a book I too believe everyone should read, whether you are grieving or not. xxx

DGKayewriter.com

Welcome to my Sunday Book Review. Today I’m reviewing a poignant book, written from her own experience with grief and loss, as well as shared interviews with some of her bereavement clients, by Dr. Joanne Cacciatore.

As many of you know, I’ve read a number of books on grief – from the clinical to the afterlife, and one thing I can say about this book is that it stands out from others because it talks about all aspects and changes of life we go through when grief strikes – not just the expected things. Dr. Cacciatore has ‘worn the shoes’. One other thing I’d like to note about this book is that I would highly recommend everyone to read this book. Why? Because everyone in the world will have to experience it in their lifetimes, and for those who haven’t yet, this book gives amazing insights. It’s also a good…

Dedicated to the one and only rollercoaster that I ever rode. It was in Portugal, and I was on holiday with my young family.

So, it’s time to ride another rollercoaster… I hope you will come along with me for this crazy ride! Let’s meet our fears together…

Faeries, Children and Altered States of Consciousness

Neil’s essay in the Wollaton Gnomes. He discusses Faeries and Children and altered states of consciousness.

deadbutdreaming

A new publication by Simon Young, The Wollaton Gnomes: A Nottingham Fairy Mystery maps out the peculiar incident from 1979 when a group of children experienced gnome-like entities in a park in Nottingham. The book includes all the known sources, with a discussion of the data. It also has ten new essays that expound upon the incident and introduce a range of perspectives upon what may have happened. My own essay (adapted to include an introduction for anyone unfamiliar with the incident) is republished below. The discussion is curtailed somewhat, due to the word count for the publication, but there will be more lengthy articles here concerning the faeries and altered states of consciousness in the near future. Thanks to Simon for permission to share the text here at deadbutdreaming.
