My Romani Gypsy background has given me a wealth of
experience, strength, and understanding, a coping
mechanism for life, which all Romani Gypsies need considering the persecution we've suffered.
Through my life I have seen how dire the human situation is here on Earth, socially, ecologically, economically, and culturally. I have learned that drawing off the original template Earth gave to humans thousands of years ago, with its necessary values, is the only means of surviving modern life. Feelings of low self-worth and not belonging are now rife in our society. I therefore help folk to understand culture as a means of connecting with Earth, and each other in an original and authentic way. We are obliged to pull ourselves away from "pretend culture" and give ourselves a taste of real authentic culture if we are to preserve our dignity, self-worth, and our souls.
We Borrow the Earth: An Intimate Portrait of the Gypsy Folk Tradition and Culture, first published by HarperCollins, and more recently by Ravine Press, became a hit across the world, with its follow-up Coming Home to the Trees: Travelling with the Gypsy Spirit of the Past. These books are probably more popular now than ever, across the globe. They serve as a valuable education.
I am also now providing simple economical courses on different subjects, accompanied by my free videos on my YouTube channel.
I very much enjoy writing fiction and music at my home in Southwest Wales. My music is available on my Bandcamp page and you can watch accompanying videos on my YouTube channel.
I would like to thank you all warmly here for your continued support of my work.
