Is the question that nobody has asked me about how I’ve been spending my limited free time this month. Re-immersing myself in the BBC TV series Merlin is the answer that I’m sharing with everyone anyway. BBC Merlin fascinates me, both in the ways it deliberately diverges from what “everyone knows” about the Arthurian legends … More You’ve been doing what?
There are so many ways I could introduce him. Should I say that he was the noblest of Arthur’s knights and mightiest of his warriors? That he was a rescuer of damsels in distress and slayer of evil knights and vicious beasts? Or is it more important to mention that Arthur favoured him above all … More Some thoughts on Lancelot

He spent the first fourteen years of his life believing he was an orphan, owing everything to the Knight and his wife who took him … More In which I think about Arthur …

Oh and I don’t own Merlin, no copyright infringement intended, I’m not making any money … More A little Merlin fan fiction

I’d almost forgotten I had this blog but I realised I wanted to post some of my poems and other writing and remembered I’d set it up. So, I’m back and I thought I’d post some of the pics I took while I was in Pierrefonds last September – watching the cast films some of … More Neglected but not forgotten
