Birthday

Birthday

Really appreciate you taking the time to check out this blog. Birthdays are always seen as a self indulgence time of year but if you know anything about me, there’s always a community element, somewhere.

My Birthday party is on the 25th April

KMT’s Freedom News

So this is my 1st Blog Post. Although I appear to be as busy as ever. This year has provided me an opportunity to explore what I really love to do and who I am. Perhaps a deep and philosophical question for my 1st entry Prof but despite how much I had achieved I really did not reached the essence of my expression of creativity yet.

Last year, I was prompted to write more after composing blogs for Native Sun whilst we toured Sudan, the USA and Mexico. More recently MAMA D an elder and volunteering at the May Project Gardens www.mayproject.org is guiding me on this journey www.mayproject.org Its really amazing after all my years of caring and supporting so many people, to now have people actually seeing my essence and give me a nudging in the right direction and very often a helping hand.

Writing in the later form, I have found this more challenging. I constantly have to look within to write about me.

What has become apparent is the healing process of every part of my expression.  I’m recording my 4 tracks E.P called Fear of Green Planet © and spending more time at home; in the garden which provides me with a great opportunity to reflect and metamorphose

At times I’m slightly overwhelmed by the task of maintaining the may project gardens.  I have doubts whether I had made the right decision to steer the project in the direction to make the project financial self sufficient, not reliant on myself to generate revenue, as I will not always be present. There has to be a balance of maintaining the garden (earth care) my well being, my home (people care) and fair share (business and finance) each permaculture space will different but I would tend to think resources and finance will be the most dominant themes for those living in city environments especially as for the 1st time in world history its predicted that 50% of of the world’s population live in urban environment and this is set to increase. Irrespective whether this is completely accurate, there are very visible signs in London of housing growth replacing green land, open spaces or historic buildings.

Letting go and enjoying the space, observing nature has been a wonderful inspiration and a constant reminder of the strength, resilience and cycles involved in completion or evolving. One Sunday after a couple of hours pottering around the garden, I finally got to spend time with my neighbor who moved in next door to me in December. Despite our apparent separate lifestyles, our conversation revealed so much in common. Both of us grew up in poor backgrounds (polish police aren’t no joke!), having very traumatic family upbringings. (Our stories are those of 1000’s and millions of people across the world simply trying to survive and making a better life for us). He works very hard providing economic stability to his close friends and family I understand his passion. I’ve worked hard all my life doing the same for people, often neglecting my own well being, times are changing, I’m finding a better equilibrium.

The purpose of this blog is to highlight the challenge of wanting to be Green in a City.  There exists a real opportunity for alternative lifestyle, one which is more in keeping with the land. Working with nature, technology, resources and people are all available to move away from the existing model of us as city folk as only consumers, which places a premium on the basics of living such as food, water, shelter and heating. Yet the my voice and the countless of others that would be reap the most benefit from these transition are not the voices that are heard or define the way the city’s are greened, they are not the voices of power, they are not the voices of privilege. They are not the voices of women, voices of color, voices of marginalized. The voices that need to be in the forefront of any green movement that really wants to change.
