These films explore two of the major issues of our era: dubbed Peak Oil and Climate Change. For two sane and sensitive responses to these horrors, I recommend the current Earth Day posts on Art Predator and Red Star Café.
My own sane (I hope) response, as I have said, is to invite local people to help me set out a large pebble labyrinth on the beach on Sunday.
“… Rain or shine, this event will go ahead.
Join Linda and help make the labyrinth. Bring your friends and relations. Bring a picnic. Bring your musical instruments. Bring cameras, camcorders or sketch books if you have them…
The labyrinth is a time-honoured way of relaxing the mind, and drawing attention to our immediate surroundings and our connection with the Earth. When the pebbles are all laid in place, we will be able to walk our individual paths to the centre of the labyrinth and back out again. The idea is to have fun, whilst giving us pause for reflection upon this beautiful coastal landscape that is our home.”
