Alan Watts – we are all connected…

We are all connected.

We are not separate from nature, we are nature.

The universe and the individual are inseparable.

The flowers cannot survive without the bees, and the bees cannot survive without the flowers. So they are one organism. We are part of a tremendous brain which we cannot understand, because the part cannot comprehend the whole.

I was particularly interested in his comments on how the natural world is presented in ‘squiggles’ or wavy lines, whereas most of what modern ‘man’ produces is straight lines. Like Alan Watts, I find that the natural world’s aesthetic forms appeal to me more than the aesthetic forms that men produce.

“Elämän-Puu” – tiny cob & straw bale house

Heidi Vilkman lives in the North East of England, but is from Finland. Over 3 months in the summer of 2012, she built a tiny house made from cob and straw bale in southern Finland.

Heidi is a brilliant multi-disciplined artist and produces paintings, drawings, jewellery, cards, paper-cut art and much, much more. Her talents have clearly been poured into her beloved tiny house which features sculpted interior and exterior detail.
