An eccentric chap called Peter Aziz claims to heal patients with the help of dragons, tree spirits and fairies. Whilst remaining open to alternative therapies, chakra healing, aura balancing etc, this was definitely 'way out there' with the use of mythical creatures. I watched in awe as he walked to a tree that was calling to him offering it's branches for healing properties. Apparently, only 10% of trees actually want to help human beings. Then there are water spirits that offer guidance, and can cause life-threatening illnesses if they are imprisoned in a blocked well under your house. He could even see fairies under a waterfall. Do such creatures actually exist after all? Regardless of his kooky methods and obsecure chanting, his patients seemed impressed with their results. One claimed that he saved her disabled child's life, after the medical profession had offered no hope. If all else failed, would you be willing to try anything, even the use of dragon's stones?.....

My TV reception is completely screwed right now - I'm completely reliant on DVDs. Not a problem usually, but it means I miss little oddities like this. Would have liked to have seen it.

Mythical creatures stretches the credibility for even the kookiest of kooks. I remember reading a book about the start of the Findhorn Foundation (a famous kooks' sanctuary in Scotland) and one of the founding members saw little spirit people who helped him to communicate with nature and grow prize winning vegetables in ground that was essentially sand.

Hey, why not, eh? I'm not gonna try and invalidate anybody's reality. Would I resort to such therapy myself? If I was in pain and suffering I'd dance naked by the light of the silvery moon, just on the off-chance that it might help. Probably try a few pain killers first though.

Don't try and reproduce it in Photoshop ... you'll warp your monitor.

That sounds like it was good for a giggle - The programme that is, not Ian dancing naked by the light of the silvery moon.

I love it when people are enthusiastic about things , however barmy. There was an oldish fella at the wickerman festival who had a stall selling runes - just bits of wood with symbols on really- and he had a crown on with some symbol on the front. He was deadly serious when I asked him what it meant and he said -"it signifies that I am a Runemaster". ""oh really, that's fascinating" was all I could think to say at the time. It was all just so matter of fact.

I remember reading about the findhorn community. There was a really nice book produced with great photography and interesting quotations. It looked a great place to me.

Now, considering your living arrrangements, why don't you two club together and buy a tipi (with broadband access of course) and go off and start a commune. I know I'm speaking from the position of being on the ladder (more by luck than judgement) and it's easy for me to say but it's certainly not everything. Freedom to choose and change course at any moment is a big advantage.

Mmm hippy commune eh? It's definitely an interesting idea but if I know Ian, he'd want to make it into some kind of rampant love orgy and I am just too conservative for that. I am a one boy, one girl type of person. (Or one girl, one girl / one guy, one guy). I know what you mean though, I am constantly inbetween Barnsley and Leeds these days, living out of a travel bag and it is strangely liberating.

I don't know - you innocently talk about alien sex at a few discussion groups and you're instantly branded forever as a rampant love orgiest!

Ah well, I guess there are worse things.

Chance'd be a fine thing though.

Didn't know Ian was such a love god. You've obviously got him weighed up Jen.
So what about making a big fibre glass shell just big enough for two to put on your back?

Talking of rampant love orgies ...

Iíve been working hard on Chapter 1 of my current project and Iím fast approaching the notorious sex scene. For research Iíve started reading Forbidden Flowers and Men In Love by Nancy Friday. Basically theyíre comprised of hundreds of women (in Flowers) and men (in the other one) writing candidly about their sexual fantasies. Iíve only read a few letters out of each book and my page of notes has already overflowed!

The scene I have in mind involves the reader dipping into the minds of all of the different characters that have been introduced so far as they have sex or masturbate (not all in the same room, I hasten to add!). The idea is to show the richness and variety of sexual and creative expression inherent in a typical and rather mundane cross section of people: male, female, young, old, etc. But I tell you Ö after reading the first few letters in these books I can see I havenít got enough characters! Hmm, unless I get them doubling and tripling up Ö incorporating multiple sexual practices simultaneously. See the challenges I come up against!

A few of the worldly women in my office have agreed to read it and give me feedback, warn me if Iím in danger of making a fool of myself. Iím beginning to wonder about the wisdom of it now.

But thereís something heart warming and poignant about the oddness of being human that comes across when reading these books. Thatís what Iíll be trying to capture.

Have you checked out that 'feedback' isn't a new nickname for some deviant practice? -just a thought

Well it's all good research. I'm sure they know what they're doing.

This is hilarious yet fascinating. Can I read it too? You do see human beings in such a positive way. I think I have a similar view that they are complex yet beautiful. But unfortunately some of the pressures / norms of religion /society and old-fashioned views about sex etc sometimes creep into my mind on occasion.

What do you know? It is a small world indeed. I actually have one book by Nancy Friday called 'My Secret Garden.' It's my one guilty secret. Don't get it out very often though anymore, my ex used to read aloud some of the fantasies while we errr.....cannodled. Alas, no more.

Ah, yeah - My Secret Garden was the first one she did, back at the end of the sixties I believe. It was a groundbreaking piece of work at the time, i believe. Haven't got a copy of it, but I think I'll get one. The Forbidden Flower is the one that came afterwards when people who had read the first felt a great sense of relief that they weren't the only ones who thought 'bad thoughts' and sent in their own fantasies. According to the introduction the fantasies of subsequent generations have become less shamefaced and guilt-ridden since My Secret Garden.

I have a history of being very repressed on these matters (my dad had very immature attitudes towards bringing up a son) so I'm currently finding all of this very informative and refreshing. I guess I'm positive about the rest of the human race because I've made a conscious decision to give myself a break and be positive about me.

What about you, Richard? You're a teense older than me, I think. You sexually liberated, mate, or does the very question get you blushing?

Oh! And yes, Jen ... probably ... maybe ... you can read it. I'll make my final decision after I've written it. Aiming for the end of the month. I'll keep you posted.
