Entry Hall

Welcome to Shadowborn Manor!

At present, the Manor only contains pages of pictures from my holidays over the last few years. As and when I get around to it, I will be extending the site to cover a number of other topics, so check back every so often if you are interested in the stuff the goes on inside my head.

Warning: Do not use the back button to navigate this site, it doesn't work properly. Instead, use the menu bar above.

If you have any comments, or spot any mistakes, let me know at

  Since her arm out of the dust has raised me,
Beats my heart so boldly and serene;
And my cheek still tingles with her kisses,
Flushed and glowing where her lips have been.
Every word she utters, by her magic
Rises new-created, without flaw;
Hearken to the tidings of my goddess,
Hearken to the Sovereign, and adore!
Friedrich Hölderlin, Sämtliche Werke, I, p. 126
