Birds and people or all ages, out on a sunny day Our love for nature is a performance, and if you truly love it and put it above you then what can you do? You will leave the world and leave it to what? To a little boy stomping at a bird to watch it take off. He shouts ìl y a un petit! He sees the baby swan, the moorhead chick the size of a bath toy, and he’s mesmerised! But still he doesn’t question his superiority or that of his brother flinging a soccer ball towards the birds. Call, response, responsible for what? Responsibility? People love their dogs, their dogs love them and the cats stay home and my love for birds is unrequited. Us: we are the world, we are everywhere now and every path has its plastic bottle and there’s glitter under that hedge. How did it happen? I don’t think we’re that smart.

The Collective Field

There is something new afoot. The field itself is changing.

The creature world knows. The creative one does too.

So what does it mean now to listen?

How do we express what we know?

Be alert.

Individually and in concert,

There is sanctity in it.

Amid new conditions, travel the field and explore

By call and response

The rhythm within.

How does your song fit

Within the collective chorus?
