from BARDO

The stars are in our belly; the Milky Way our umbilicus.

Is it a consolation that the stuff of which we’re made

is star-stuff too?

– That wherever you go you can never fully disappear –

dispersal only: carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen.

Tree, rain, coal, glow-worm, horse, gnat, rock.

images of the soul: the branscombe day

With my friend sculptor and artist Michael Fairfax I've done many collaborations out in the landscape over the last 13 years, notably as part of the Genius Loci group for the Year of the Artist at Hestercombe Gardens in Somerset, and then at the Cotswold Water Park in Wiltshire. A couple of years ago we led a workshop together on the coast at Branscombe Mouth in East Devon – I led the morning writing session and Michael the afternoon land art workshop. It was very creative and a lot of fun.

We're offering it again this month, for any of you who are local-ish. This time we're focusing on the idea of the medicine wheel and the mandala as symbols of the soul. 

I'm looking forward to it – Michael and I work well together and it's a very beautiful place. 

Here are some details for you:

A day for exploring the edges where we meet with self and other, inner and outer, at the beautiful Branscombe Mouth, in the spirit of creativity, mindfulness and play.

We'll meet at 9.45am at the village hall car park (NB NOT at Branscombe Mouth itself).  Numbers are limited.
