Earth Art

I work for the Great Earth Mother.

I feel honoured to capture images of her and post them through Bealtaine Cottage.

I believe that more and more of human life will come to honour the Great Mother through these images.

This is her Art…Earth Art.

(These images were captured here at Bealtaine Cottage during the Winter of 2010)

“Remain faithful to the earth,

my brothers and sisters,

with the power of your virtue. Bealtaine Cottage Permaculture

Let your gift-giving love and your knowledge serve the meaning of the earth. sun 19 12 10 032

Thus I beg and beseech you. Bealtaine Cottage Permaculture

Do not let them fly away from earthly things and beat with their wings against eternal walls. 

Bealtaine Cottage Permaculture

Alas, there has always been so much virtue that has flown away.

Bealtaine Cottage Permaculture

Lead back to the Earth the virtue that flew away,

tue morn 7 12 10 008

—back to the body,

wed eve 8 12 10 013

back to life,

Bealtaine Cottage Permaculture

that it may give the Earth a meaning,

Bealtaine Cottage Permaculture

a human meaning.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

As War Looms…keeping Faith with Mother Earth!

permaculture gardens at bealtainecottage.com 008Such news as makes me angry…so off into the gardens to get working and channel my energy as best I can!

And as if Mother Earth

heard my despair, she has worked tirelessly overnight making the compost heap look beautiful…I laugh out loud in joy!

This morning as I spread compost and seaweed on the vegetable beds, before mulching down with cardboard and straw, I ponder on putting the exposed earth to bed for the winter…this makes me feel as though I am nurturing the great Mother. 

It is all I can do to help assuage the horrors of what Man does to her!

The big tidy-up is important, before the wind and rain sets in…and what a lot of tidying to be done!

Just in case you thought anything about where the compost toilet is emptied…in these neat bins, holes drilled into the bottom of each, no smell, no flies and thoroughly sustainable on site!

Something quite extraordinary is happening.
