Please tell us a little about yourself.
I was born in London in 1956 and lived in the South East of England, apart from a few years in Edinburgh until 2001, when I moved to West Wales. I have a grown up daughter, Sadie, who lives in London. My partner, David, runs a pottery where we live in Llanfihangel-Ar-Arth. I work in IT, as a trainer and programmer, and I also run self-help workshops. I have always had a passion about the spiritual aspects of life, and questions such as - Why are humans on earth? How can we develop our ESP? Is there life after death? In pursuit of these and similar questions I have studied various philosophical and religious ideas.
What's your story about?
My passion for history. I have visited ancient sites in Wales and around the world and have tried to feel and interpret the vibrations left behind from the past. These vibrations are ancient, and also more modern, sites are something that I believe we all pick up on subconsciously, but it takes practice to listen to ourselves to become more aware of them. I find that this way of researching history brings it to life and makes it more accessible and relevant to my life. I hope that I too will leave a trace that will be a constructive legacy for those yet to come. My story is dedicated to a man called Leo (now deceased), whose inspirational works have given me many key ways into these unseen, causative realms.
What did you find most rewarding about the workshop?
Coming away with a story that I feel proud of and that accurately represents what I wanted to say, and also that I now have the skill, with the encouragement and support of the Capture Wales team, to make more digital stories and hopefully pass these skills on to others. There is a sense of liberation and an empowerment to this digital storytelling process.
