This website has been created by Anne Yarwood, resident in Ascot for over 50 years, to show how individuals CAN effect change… can DO something about their concerns, in an imaginative way.
This month’s theme is –
PLASTICS : PERMACULTURE
This has been difficult to compose. It is so PAINFUL to know about plastic pollution in our far distant oceans. First pain. Increasingly I felt ANGER. Anger that research, observation and consultation … have seemingly devoured time for action, over decades.
David Attenborough woke us up. ( Ah! The eternal prophetic voice). The wake-up is selling newspapers, sharpening government policy statements, really calling to the heart of myriad action groups in local communities.
So this website’s focus on striking the IMAGINATION’S match in the dark and the light … the swirling dynamic of YIN YANG interplay …are symbolised by a brief look at PLASTICS & PERMACULTURE.
WAKE UP is where to start reading; examples of ”power’s” talk and the oceans plight.
THE BLOG repeats Maya Angelou’s persistent message of resilience, beneath an image of Nature’s power of renewal.
THE STORY starts to explore PERMACULTURE … examples of personal actions which have spin-offs.
OUR GALLERY .. always fun to compose ! Has a few more mutters around negative and positive examples of the theme … plus lots of photos.
TALES details inspiring PERMACULTURE projects in a nearby big town. Nearly at the end … we list a few of the many info sources used to compile this edition of TIA. And FINALLY we walk through an entrancing space, in Mexico.
