THE IMAGINATION ACTS 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.
Welcome to our New Year January 2020 edition :-
ONLY CONNECT: TREES above, FUNGI below, NEIGHBOURS in-between
Sally & I decided last Autumn, to keep open minds for this first edition of 2020…we’ll see what “calls” we muttered to each other. Now, as all of us worldwide rally our personal and collective selves to LIVE the new decade, Sally & I agree that MIGRATION should be the challenging focus for the early Spring edition; a key concern for the populations of EU nations; how to hold-on to their present advantages…. The wild travellers…throwing of self, to the winds and the seas..
Today, a few days into the New Decade I’m collating many weeks’ Research into “TREES”. (I admit, dear Readers, to the Gloom which overtakes me on many a day. Post General Election in U.K, BREXIT, CLIMATE CHANGE conference, trees burning …)
Trees offer another shade of dark. They just ARE . Their self sustaining and reclaiming power all too often viewed as shade, decor, usefulness by human beings.
So…I’m going for Trees above, their inner world; soil & fungi below and human commitment to connect with these systems of Nature…effective through the ages.
”We never look deeply into the quality of a tree; we never really touch it, feel its solidity, its rough bark, and hear the sound that is part of the tree. Not the sound of wind through the leaves, not the breeze of a morning that flutters the leaves, but its own sound, the sound of the trunk and the silent sound of the roots” – Jiddu Krishnamurti
