Fond Recallings


A visit to’ The Honeyclock,’

The entrance is a flurry of possibilities.

Taking a deep breath I step,

Two feet securely inside.

Eyeing to my left, a shelf of suggestions.


Stepping away for a wider view

My index finger clean, has its own impulse

Tracing sensuously over the cover of a book,

then another. I am aware my head tilts to the left,

Reaching a known place. My mind flashes:

’ What are you doing child! Keep going!’


A fantasy- I would love to live in the gentle colours,

Or take up residence here, or be a spirit in the night.

Seated on the floor, reading until the sun

Hoists dawn over the horizon, sunrise!

Munching on the occasional chocolate brownie.

Time for taking my mind, to the delicious delirium

of the world’s most esoteric thoughts.


What more could a girl want……mmmmm.

Rudolf Steiner seated next to me,

Answering my manifold of questions,

To sooth my impatience to understand.

Maybe it was he

I felt on my right side, he who scoffed the cookies.


Book, so many books!

The wisdom held in the interleaved pages.

How to choose?  This one, I will take this one, no this one!


“‘Christianity as Mystical Fact’, that’s it! How much is it Sharon?”

Forty two dollars.

So reasonable for a book containing the highest,

The highest of esoteric wisdom!

 Closing or Moving
…a  question that has been asked often in the last few weeks.  We have been waiting for a buyer to come along and take The Honeyclock to it’s next home, however sadly, they haven’t found their way to us, so we are closing down.  Our last day will be NEXT Saturday, (14th June).  That’s only 7 more trading days!
We are still hopeful The Honeyclock will grow up again somewhere in the near future and as you are on our mailing list we will notify you when and where this happens.
Thank you so much for all that you have given, your support at The Honeyclock is what made it shine so brightly.  We can’t say THANK YOU loud enough

As many of you will know The Honeyclock has been for sale since February.  Our buyer doesn’t seem to have found their way to us just yet however we are still hopeful they are on their way.  In the mean time we have discovered we will need to vacate our current premises and so our last trading day in our current light filled shop will be Saturday 14 June, that’s about 6 weeks away.
If you are not on our mailing list or our ‘friend’ on Facebook, or following our ‘blog’ and you want to stay up to date with where we move to please send us your email address and we can add you to our ‘moving notification’ list and keep you fully informed and up to date with our movements.

Stories and Storytelling

And Then Story Starters Vol2And Then… Story Starters Vol 2

When we tell our own imaginative stories a whole new world opens up.  Sometimes they can be a bit tricky to begin so here are 20 story starters to help.  What kind of story will you tell –  A long story, a short story, a story that takes place in a faraway land, a story right here at home, a story filled with bright colours and mysterious characters and all kinds of unexpected things.

Storytelling with Children by Nancy Mellon

 Storytelling with Children“Many people are surprise at  that young children what them to make up stories.   Yet it doesn’t take long to realise how meeting their need for stories creates a sense of warmth, family & community.   This book has been written to stimulate your direct experience of the wise and benevolent creative forces which, however dormant, are in each and every one of us.”

SCAN0005The Power of Stories by Horst Kornberger

This is a fascinating and inspiring book for teachers, parents or carers of children, as well as creative writers and students of literature.  ‘This beautifully written and wise book taps into a deep source, the spring of imagination. The author […] gives very helpful examples of certain stories particularly well-suited to different ages, explaining how each matches and reflects the child’s developing consciousness. If you have anything to do with children, buy this book. If you have anything to do with yourself, buy it as well.”  — Matthew Barton, New View, summer 2007
