Latest Journal post January to April

The Journal posts are my exploration in peace, activism, social courage, justice and change as a songwriter, with photographs, poems, travel notes, meditations, song and relaxation recordings and also written and recorded interviews with those I’ve met along the way.

Please also see sharing space with an invitation for your stories.

I also hold a quiet space every morning and evening on zoom followed by a short reading on peace from different tradition and sources. Visit to be with others in quiet together – click the picture below for more on that.
