Pretty specimen of Agaricus campestris (shhhhh - it’s only a common field mushroom!) from my walk today, but unfortunately a lone one  nice peachy coloured gills and a lovely mushroomy scent.

Guardians of the Galaxy design up for voting at Qwertee! http://www.qwertee.com/tees/vote/selected#meet-the-guardians

Not my normal type of stuff, but my SON designed this! Go give it a vote, please, because the last time one of his designs won and went to print, sales of the shirts allowed him to purchase a new macbook to continue his work. :-)

Max Weber talked about western Modernity as a ‘progressive disenchantment of the world’. Part of that disenchantment is the loss of our belief in the importance of stories. This is important, because it is stories that provide ways to test our hypotheses about the nature of the world, that attach us to place, to the land, to the earth. To each other, and to nonhuman others. The folk tales, the fairy stories, the legends, the myths. These are the stories that hold a real power to transform, the stories that reveal the world to us in all its complexity. That peel layers of the world away like an onion.

What can you do when you’ve lost your stories? Well, you set about finding them again. We can all participate in the process of re-storying the Earth. But this process is not necessarily about making up new stories: the old stories still have their power. The old stories never left, you see. We just need to remember them, revisit them, remind ourselves of the thousands of years’ worth of wisdom contained within them. This is what I mean by re-storying.

Stromness, Hamnavoe -
‘haven inside the bay’
Twenty stone piers, with boats.
A street uncoiling like a sailor’s rope

Hi everyone!I have been doing a lot of work for PapioPress recently so I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while! I though you might be interested in a sneak peak of a special screen print I’m doing next week for my table at the Cape Cornwall show at the end of July.
