This is where I am supposed to be
Here, where I'm with you and you're with me
How can such a wonderment be wrong?
When my heart knows you're the place where I belong
And my body knows the sound, the smell, the feel
And my mind knows the impossible is real
From the first look, my soul has recognised
The star-crossed answer, here, where eyes meet eyes

With palms upturned and waiting to be filled
My breathing sighs a rising to be stilled
Though you hear the breath, you never make the move
Are you waiting for me yet my love to prove?
Is it God or is it blood that stays my hand?
Though my ears roar with the screaming "Make a stand!"
And with all that's left undone, you drive away
And the night delivers me another day


from The Mermaid's Lament, released September 21, 2014

I come from Pembrokeshire in West Wales where I have been lucky to live all my life in a land of crashing waves, rugged cliffs, mirrored pools, twisting oaks, windswept thorn and peeping primrose.
After many years performing and creating with my guitar I have now found my dream instrument in the Celtic lever harp.
I play a Telor model, made at Telynau Teifi, The Harp Centre of Wales in Llandysul.
