I saw a little pixie cutting down some branches in my allotment today...he was doing me quite a favour actually...
Appleton Permaculture. Pete recently did a talk at a PDC I was visiting on permaculture and social enterprise. His site here is aimed at giving people the advice and information to make permaculture ideas and designs into actions and changes!

Thinking about regenerating life! ...and growing some new, and kinder perceptions.
In a meditation the other day I felt a heave of sadness realizing that I wasn't a river, a mountain, a sheep...anythng...These elements exist, without feeling the worry of how to. Well I assume. They don't try, they just are. They don't tell themselves off for not doing enough, not living right, worry about which way forward, about how to be, to live, trying trying... and they are magnificent. Keeping up with human energies, interactions, it's tiring to engage with that all the time. What are we doing like it's perfectly normal? What creatures we are. A lonely place. I'm alive, but not for long, and then what? Give in to this. We're here to reflect back to the universe it's splendour. In whatever way that is. If I can do that no matter what I'm 'achieving' then, I'm doing alright.
There is a lot to do, yep. But that needs to come from the right place. Yeah, and maybe one day I can make a big and positive impact, with ease.
