Somewhere Nowhere Customer FeedbackThanks for this beautiful and reflective blog piece.
I came away feeling like I had held a conversation with the landscape as much as the people, and getting to know both was a real joy. Thank you for making such magic happen.
The Long View project should be prescribed on the NHS. I can’t recommend getting involved highly enough. It was a beautiful mix of sharing thoughts, knowledge, history, feelings and poetry in a glorious setting. Thank you Rob & Harriet for a superb day. Looking forward (and hoping to) join you on some more.
How we view and use and relate to our land is an immediate imperative for us to consider. If I were Capt Kirk arriving on this earth like planet I think I would be struck by the incredible and destructive divisions in belief systems among its inhabitants, by the wanton self-destruction, by the imperative to dominate and find technical solutions to the implicit wars between cultures, by the petty nature of personal opinion and economic warfare, while at the same time thinking that this planet looks like an incredible oasis in the universe. The inhabitants seem to not see what they live on and share and how valuable that planet is – even to the inhabitants and their own futures. In a small place I might find something that shows that there is consideration of this, a small temporary mark in a landscape, something that some inhabitants have made to draw attention to the land, to say stop and think, stop travelling through it and admiring it through car windows, to stop just viewing it as a tourism asset or as something to be just preserved in aspic. I would see this temporary mark - this yellow line in Wasdale - as significant evidence that some inhabitants have intelligence and love for their planet, and I would seek out those who made it as people to talk to.
