This is Alderley Edge in Cheshire, England. It’s a place steeped in myth and legend, inspiring Lewis Carroll’s Cheshire Cat and Alan Garner’s series of spooky children’s folk tales, such as The Owl Service. King Arthur is supposed to have met Merlin the Wizard here, and tucked under The Edge is an ancient Wishing Well, with Merlin’s face carved into the rock.

Easter on the Edge
Happy Birthday! The Vibes is One Year Old
Break out the bubbly, because The Vibes has been vibrating for a whole twelve months.
The best thing about blogging has been connecting with artists, photographers, poets and other creative types. I love the Nature, Photography and Art pages: that’s where I find the wow factor. The worst thing is the hate speech on the ‘religious’ topic pages. There’s a lot of people out there with issues and it ain’t pretty.
The hardest thing was customizing my theme until I’d wrestled the Adventure Journal into something that reflected my personality. I’ve managed to build myself a bit of a profile on WordPress, shown off my artwork and photography and upset some Cross People.
It all began with a modest post about sprinkling the ashes of my beloved cat around Merlin’s Well in Alderley Edge. I think the Wizard and King Arthur would be proud of the travel/photography scrapbook which has emerged since then. And it has to be said: when I press Like, it means I really like something and I’m not just being a shameless blogtrollop. So, hi to all my followers, thanks for sticking with me and here’s to another year!
Now. Is there an electrician in the house?
