ENJOYING SPAIN BY PUTTING BRUSH TO CANVASS – Artist KEN DAVY

I’m a Yorkshire lad who is retired and living in Spain. It is enjoyable to see how people in another country live and to view their wonderful countryside.

When I come across pretty Spanish villages, I believe it nice to share these views by putting brush to canvass.

 I like to show off my amateur skills by giving you a taste of the villages in the area where I live. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed painting them.

” Aullaremos a la luna otra vez
cuando sea lo único que brille
que nos guarde y nos cuide
atacaremos al destino otra vez
para que nos junte
para que permita que nos mordamos otra vez
para que nos aloje en el centro de la constelación que habita en tus ojos
a la izquierda del faro en medio de un amanecer
mantendremos una manada de dos otra vez
cuando nuestros caminos se crucen
y tu estés ardiendo
y yo tenga ganas de incendiar el cielo
aullaremos a la luna otra vez
entre roces y contacto
entre conexiones celestiales e infiernos congelados
alimentaremos nuestros demonios otra vez
nos convertiremos en cánidos lamiendo nuestras mutuas heridas
a finales de invierno, a principio de primavera
dejaremos huella en el universo
como nunca antes lo hemos hecho
mientras aullamos
mientras le aullamos a la luna otra vez. ”

YOUTH TRAINING PROGRAM – THE HAGUE

HOLLAND WAS FANTASTIC AND THE YOUTH TRAINIG PROGRAM WAS A GREAT SUCCESS

A report on my recent attendance at the Youth Training Course offered by the Erasmus + Program and platform Spartak.
A well organized and inter-active ten day program for young people interested and involved in mediation. Trainers,Virginia and Megan provided an excellent overview of mediation principles and provided opportunities for participants to engage in mediation activities and simulations.

I was able to share with participants my background in mediation and organization of mediation for companies and organizations in North America and in Europe. Information from the World Mediation Organization was provided to participants.

Evening events such as presentations by participants of materials from their home European country and indoor and outdoor activities made the event enjoyable.June 15, 2016

The story begins…

The first photo is of the Beautiful December Moon rising over Inglewood Bird Sancutary, Calgary, Alberta.

The second photo is a female Snowy Owl that calls rural Alberta her winter home before returning to the Arctic in the early spring, photographed in Bittern Lake Alberta.

The third photo is her friend the Rough-legged Hawk coming in for a landing after an afternoon of hunting. Photographed south of Strathmore, Alberta.

Becoming Aware of Our Species

https://environmentaljusticetv.wordpress.com/2016/01/30/becoming-aware-of-our-species/

This article made me realize that my book of science-fiction, Can We Save The Human Race?is not completely a work of fiction.

The journalist, Dal, recognises, “It is not always clear what is fiction and what is reality.”

This article causes us to think that we may need to redefine our reality, make changes to our economic, social and medical systems. All are explored in my work of science-fiction. Can We Save the Human Race? The The difference, it is a book, not real life. Isn´t it?
