We walked the excellent Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail.  Carole Drake’s ‘Dead Wood – Bois Mort’ was especially powerful as I reflected on this anniversary of the Srebrenica Massacre.

Forests as  places of concealment and suffering and death.
With all that threatens to drive Europe and the world apart at the moment, all that threatens human flourishing, it is time to renew our commitment to loving, nourishing, just transformations.

Ian Hamilton Finlay’s ‘Grove of Silence’ reminded me of the importance of simple, silent being in all this.

A little later I stood still as a family of wild boar crossed the track ahead.

Kevin Atherton’s ‘Cathedral’ reminds us of the stunning beauty of the woods and the human living in the world and ecology.

Thank you Cris – it was. And fortunately the big family of wild pigs who crossed the path in front of me were not at all interested in me
