Yatooi Talk-Linda: Greetings!


Yatooi Talk is a place for Yatooi members to use as we wish, simply by linking it to our blogs 0ra Page on our websites. Here we can share news, ask for help or advice, arrange collaborations, make friendships… and discuss art, environment and nature-related topics that would be of interest to us all.

We each title our new blogs with Yatooi Talk – followed by our name.
My name is Linda Gordon, an environmental artist living in South West England. So, here’s the first page of my own new blog: Yatooi Talk-Linda. 
(It was originally written on my WordPress Blog, and transferred over here. 

I am planning to use Yatooi-Talk-Linda mainly for sharing projects and experiences in nature: written text, pictures, thoughts, feelings, opinions… I am very much  looking forward to seeing your Yatooi Talk pages too! I am excited at the opportunity to meet fellow members, and the different places around the world where we all live.
I would like to know about your local landscapes/ the places around your home, whether it is buildings, or whether it is a natural environment. What does it look like? How does it make you feel? What do you like best? What do you dislike most?
What do you like about being in nature? What do you do there? Anything, or nothing? Do you like to be alone, or with friends? Do you like to make Nature Art? Or something else… perhaps singing, or some form of movement.  I have a friend who likes to hang upside down from the trees!
Why do I ask so many questions? Well, because I am curious, and it is good to come together and share our thoughts and feelings about nature, life, work and ourselves.
Feel free to ask me questions too – and leave any Comments below.

… the forest is constantly changing. And not just the forest – all of Nature. And that’s why many human attempts to conserve particular landscapes fail. What we see is always a brief snapshot of a landscape that only seems to be standing still. The illusion is almost perfect in the forest, because trees are among the slowest-moving beings with which we share our world and changes in the natural forest are observable only over the course of many human generations.
(Peter Wohlleben, “The Hidden Life of Trees”, p211).

About throughstones

I am primarily a visual artist, living on the North Devon coast, a beautiful semi-rural area in South West England. I am interested in full engagement with 'place' and the eternal movement of life - particularly as it relates to what we call 'the natural environment'.
