Aesthetics of Light

"All art is in the last analysis an endeavour to condense as out of the flying vapour of the world an image of human perfection, and for its own and not for the art’s sake, and that is why the labour of the alchemists, who were called artists in their day, is a befitting comparison for all deliberate change of style.” –Preface to Poems (1906) WB Yeats “Vision is the art of seeing things invisible.” Jonathan Swift "I don't paint so Read more....

Phaedrus

πολὺ φίλτατος ἑταῖρος "And there are few who, going to the images, behold in them the realities, and these only with difficulty." "And the soul which has seen most of truth shall come to the birth as a philosopher, or artist, or some musical and loving nature, that which has seen truth in the second degree shall be some righteous king or warrior chief, the soul which is of the third class shall be a trader, the fourth a lover of Read more....

Sikkim

Sikkim, one of the last Himalayan 'Shagri-las'. Remote, varied flora (rare orchids especially) spectacular mountain terrain. Kanchenjunga is highest peak (8598m). Picture shows Chaunrikhiang.

He tells me he looks for algorithms in pigeon motions in Chorlton lime trees. Now at the bowling Read more....

Art, Imagination & Thomas Traherne

I ‘All things were pure and glorious…I knew not that there were any sins, or complaints or laws. I dreamed not of povertie, contentions or vices. All tears and quarrels were hidden from mine eyes.

Heaven and Earth did sing…’ Thomas Traherne, The Centuries of Meditations, III.2 "Thomas Read more....

Be forever dead in Eurydice

Sonnets To Orpheus II, 13 by R. M. Rilke Be ahead of all parting, as if it had already happened, like winter, which even now is passing. For beneath the winter is a winter so endless that to survive it at all is a triumph of the heart. Be forever dead in Eurydice, and climb back singing. Climb back praising as you return to connection. Here among the disappearing, in the realm of the transient, be a ringing glass that shatters as it rings. Be. Read more....

οὐ φροντὶς (ou phrontis) – ‘Wyworri?’

"How dull life would be if we did not accept anything we could not explain!" So wrote one of the pioneers of ecological forestry and Earth healing, Richard St. Barbe Baker (1889-1982), in his foreword to Dorothy Maclean's 'Call of the Trees'. "For my part, I would rather be a believer than an unbeliever. It would be conceited to be otherwise, when there is the miracle of sunrise and sunset in the Sahara, the miracle of growth from the tiny germinating Read more....
