Unmediated Morphe from Greek 'to find essence in form'
With the biggest migration of people since the Second World War Europe is facing uncertain times and there is a need to spread a message of cultural understanding. The more we ignore it the more the problem is exacerbated. For example, the building of fires in camps is a carbon disaster, when electricity and water provided would solve problems We make visits to camps also show the resilient
Recent diary of events: April 26th it was becoming clear that we had to face the changes in environment. As if by chance (or not) it was world earth day and I knocked on a couple of doors in Cabule Road, before standing behind the gate with mask: Do you want to help this dried out Memorial Garden? Plants were donated or we shared expense, both with exuberance. We started feeding birds and welcoming stories from ppl who have come to the garden since 'granddad locked the gates and opened them every day. Sometimes I went along with him.'
Now we hold painting workshops for children and discuss who feels bereft and how we can help. Recently we transformed the Memorial Garden, with herbs and lavender and invited food sharing from our sponspor Pret, which resulted in some drinkers eating and chatting instead of being alone. The improvement led us to feel more tranquil, as we were active: ecologically active.
CFPeterson and Mona McLeod and JeanFindlay, who wisely points out that we all chase lost time, in her recent talk in New York, as writing down events takes longer than living them, a paradox.
We distribute 200 000 meals yearly,in Uk /support homeless in Berlin, with Pret Charity now offering help there too. Stories of migration are Ray's Cafe Left home of Alexandra Kremakova in Bulgaria, a more natural setting, right mother Laura and Theo Will on bough of an Atlas pine
We like to contrast more natural settings compared with those imposed by refuge, and often squalor, from poverty. Below left CK Scott Moncrieff, facing heavily wounded in the war, before leaving for Rome as closet gay.
Right below Middle Wiseman Snr, Charlie's father with Noel Coward at piano, who sponsored him, as director, although he heard all Ukrainian ancestors were
killed. Below left Jade of Uganda mentored at 'Freedom from Torture' to highly regarded successful poet. Transformed by Lucy Popescu, now bringing out book anthology of stories about child refugees, to directly challenge the negative press.
Young adults and children appeal to our shared humanity. John Lennon and Yoko's old friend and founder of Traverse and International Writers Union has given away his book as quiz prize at end of play!
