This site is inspired by my wife, Amanda (“Luthien888”) who makes so many sacrifices for me. She takes care of me now I can no longer take care of her.
She hasn’t stumbled upon it yet because I am hoping to keep it a secret until her birthday, *21st June. By then the section on crystals should be finished. She is a qualified crystal therapist and wrote the book for students with my assistance back in ’04/05, when she was a college lecturer.
I, being an amateur astronomer since I could read, volunteered to add armchair science – and art. (I had my first telescope on my 7th birthday, thanks Dad!) At the moment I am secretly updating most of the information and art from the original book.
Meantime, I plan to create a section on travel, showcasing many fine photographs from our past sojourns. I sincerely hope they will be of general interest. Please return if you like this fairly picturesque site, it is growing.
* Frankly, I doubt if I can hold out until then, I’m already dying to ‘blab’.
