Halcyon's forthcoming 52:52:52 campaign on Twitter will help you address 52 issues with 52 responses over 52 weeks.

To be a catalyst is the ambition most appropriate for those who see the world as being in constant change, and who, without thinking that they control it, wish to influence its direction - Theodore Zeldin

On Herbs

Jekka

 

Growing herbs, seeing them, smelling them, touching them, eating them and I hope, soon sharing them (as plants and incorporated into recipes and remedies), makes me - as it does millions of others, i'm sure - just feel better.

Jekka McVicar is an inspiration - she now grows around 700 different herbs.  We can even use herbs to grow our own first-aid kits

I have now been privileged enough to spend a day in the company of the wonderful Jekka and her family. Jekka, with no fewer than 14 Chelsea Golds, probably knows as much about herbs as anyone in England.

On Countries

Imagine that we could build "start-up countries" and escape limiting, outdated forms of governance that hold people back. "Seasteading", according to its advocates, has the promise to do this, creating new "spaces for human freedom".

The Forum looked at "home" from a number of thought-provoking angles, by asking:

  • What role does legend play in shaping our sense of a homeland?
  • Does it matter that rural regions are shrinking as villagers leave their homes to seek their fortune in new cities?
  • Are we alone in the universe, or are there other planets we could inhabit? (Some scientists believe there could be 10,000 civilisations in our galaxy alone.)

Ownership and interior decorations and garden designs may change over 30 years, but if location and bricks and mortar and dreams and memories remain the same, is somewhere still home?
