Spirit Boats

A simple art project that involved making spirit boats out of paper, used teabag papers and coffee filter papers, scrim, rabbit bones, sheep's wool, feathers, moss, eggshell's and lichen. They were set adrift on the River Ouse in Sussex..

Spirit Boats

I'm just sharing a photo of a "Spirit Boat" project I did. I made origami boats out of paper, scrim, tea and coffee paper, bones, moss, lichen and other natural materials and launched them on a river as a sort of ritual offering. I repeated the ritual on 30th November - Remembrance Day for Lost Species - to highlight…See More

The Incantation of Frida K.

I'm about halfway through The Incantation of Frida K. by Kate Braverman. I was a little reluctant to read about the life of Frida Kahlo again - there seems to be a lot about her. I'm struggling with the book because of this but what makes it a very good read for me is the original writing, the language - beautiful and unusual. I often like a book for the lyrical writing, the imagery, metaphors etc as much as the story.The other similar book in the voice of Frida Kahlo that I've read is "Love…See More

Kindnesses

Posted by Andrew on March 23, 2017 at 9:07 1 Comment

The love your neighbour campaign in Birmingham came about after the decision to leave the EU. There was an increase in racist attacks and the Church of England hierarchy felt they should take action. What they did was encourage schools and other community venues to put free of charge bright orange banners on fencing etc with the words love your neighbour on them. At the moment funding has been obtained to make more banners to replace any of the 1000 that have gone up already and to encourage… Continue

The bowl of feathers

Once upon a time there was a traveler from the lands below.

Lived in a cottage in the mountains all alone.

The only company he had were the animals and the trees.

Though company they were none the less spoke in language only the soul hears.

Nembutsu morning

Posted by Kaspalita on March 18, 2017 at 9:33 2 Comments

Honen encouraged his followers to set aside special times for intense practice; half a day, or a whole day, or a week. We’ll be continuously chanting nembutsu for three hours this morning. Unlike Honen I don’t manage to recite sixty or seventy thousand nembutsu everyday, as I’m going about ordinary life, so I love these set aside times when I can immerse myself in the presence of the Buddha, in the Buddha-field, in the Pure Land.…
