Our potential to change the environment we inhabit is boundless.
If we started today and worked hard for all the changes we want to see, the possible transformation is beyond our wildest dreams.
Whether we have land or not, what we are capable of implementing, in terms of creating Eden, is only limited by two things…our imagination and our ability to use our energy. “Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”
― Arundhati Roy
I have mentioned it before, but, personally, never tire of contemplating her wise words…
“Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe.
The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling – their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability.
Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them.
We create Heaven, or allow others to create Hell, whether that be through destruction of our environment, as they are doing with fracking, for example, or allowing governments to collude with corporate monsters without challenge…they are, after all, our elected trustees.
We must demand accountability at every level!

Produce in the tunnel is growing well.
There is always some food to be harvested in here all year round.
This is important as I am a vegan and need to ensure a good supply of fresh, wholesome, organic food.

Kilronan Mountain lies to the north.

The same path…
Friendship is wonderful. There is a triad symbol to friendship…a triangle…consisting of Trust, Respect and Understanding.
Rosemary Roberts suggests that this is a Celtic Triad and forms the basis of solid friendship…”Respect yourself and others through your words and actions.”
“Trust your instincts and the intentions of those close to you.”
And finally, “When acceptance of another’s actions is difficult, stand in the path of understanding.”
