On Seasons
Seasons
Halcyon In Kal… 1 May 2019

 

Ode argued compellingly that marking time with natural rhythms and seasons can grow compassion and commitment to all life.  The underlying wistfulness and enhanced "sensitivity to the passage of the seasons" is embodied in the likes of Monty Don, who combines a kanyini-like love for the soil and place, with a sense of gratitude that seems to come "from the other side of sorrow and despair".

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.

Imagine that we could build "start-up countries" and escape limiting, outdated forms of governance that hold people back.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".
