A space where

My Thoughts Take Sanctuary

Welcome to my little corner of the internet, a place where I share and show a variety of things from my photography to gaming with a look at theology and reality mixed in for good measure. Take a moment and consider the statement by Krishnamurti for it will give you all the insight you need to understand where I am coming from with a lot that I do. Be yourself, think outside the box and don't let anyone else dictate how things should be.

The primary cause of disorder in ourselves is the seeking of a reality assumed by another
— Jiddu Krishnamurti
I am only responsible for what I say, not how you understand it

About Me

my name is daniel

I am the father of two fantastic children and husband to an amazingly eccentric wife. I graduated at Liverpool Hope University in 2012 where I studied Theology & Religious Studies. A large collection of my articles have been published in pagan periodicals and one time printings and I am currently working on my first book in this field alongside my postgraduate research into seasonal practices in western European pagan traditions.

I have been a photographer since March 2010 and since then have received a variety of commendations and awards for my work. My first photo book was published in November 2010 and in June 2011 my work featured in two exhibitions in the UK, one in Liverpool and the other in Manchester. My first written book, Liber Crwcawrach Volume 1: Naturae Mysteriis was released at Spring Equinox 2017 and Volume II: Arcanum will be a combination of my written and photographic work. This is scheduled to be released early 2018 and will be available in two editions.
