The Point of Vanishing & Other Dreams


In my blog, I explore the themes that weave through my stories and dreams:

the need to belong, and the fear of loss; the longing for family and home and love; loneliness and the extraordinary power of the human spirit; depression - and hope; the clarifying presence of the natural world, and ways of being awake and alive in the only moment we really have: this one.

I hope you'll follow me beyond the storytelling, and join me on this very human journey....


"Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world." ~Oscar Wilde

‘I dream my paintings and then I paint my dreams’. ~Vincent Van Gogh

The following little creations are taken from recent dreams, rough hewn and unpolished, mined directly from the unconscious. They are the raw material for future Wishing Tree tales, and they are very, very short .


Dreams are more real than reality itself, they're closer to the self. ~ Gao Xingjian


The Point of Vanishing and Other Dreams is my collection of short stories: twelve whimsical tales where the familiar meets the otherworldly, each inspired by a dream...

Now and then I also write a short experimental piece, a dream-snippet. You can find these at MoonsilverTales.

When I'm not doing writerly things, I create quirky pendants and cufflinks at The Pickled Muse.
