A Place Of Life We Sense

The idea of a garden is complex, yet so easily experienced...

I ponder on what defines a garden, the gardener, on our need and love of gardens, and my experience of them, near and far.

Two gardens have shaped me. The garden where I live in Southern England, and a garden in Tuscany, Italy where I spent three months in late summer and autumn...

As humans, we need trees in order to survive.
Therefore it is a no-brainer that we do our utmost to plant, protect and nurture them.
Unfortunately as a species we are doing the opposite.
We need to change our thinking and behaviour immediately if we are to survive as a species.
Happy National Tree Day! (28 July 2019)

The wren is a tiny bird and frequent visitor to my garden. As a child, my favourite coin was the farthing worth one quarter of a pre-decimal penny, and with a beautiful depiction of a wren on one side. That it was the lowest unit of currency that ceased to be used in the year of my birth made it all the more valuable.

The Rights of Living Things is a declaration that seeks to encourage thought about how we act with all kinds of life.

The music 'The Wren in Winter' supports the fifth article that asserts all life has the right to be regarded as important and potentially beneficial to the world.

With Life, Love

Life, this moment of our here and now,
This place of all we ever are,
The time we share in this our touch of present near and far.
With peace revere this treasured place of sudden sound and light,
As once we play upon this earth with all that is with love unite.

We are not just at an ecological tipping point, but a social one, too. Brazil’s Indigenous people and the forests they protect are facing annihilation.
If the Amazon rainforest alone is destroyed, the resulting carbon emissions could make it extremely difficult to limit global warming to less than two degrees. Burning fossil fuels is often seen as the only culprit in climate breakdown, but tropical deforestation is the second-largest source of carbon emissions in the world.
Even losing part of the Amazon could cause a tipping point where the forests no longer create enough rain to sustain themselves. This would cause droughts that would drive many species to extinction, devastate farming in the region and likely cause further violence.
