EDITORIAL

When I published the July issue of this Newsletter, I found myself again and again drawn back to the article, "Green Creed" authored by my good friend Barley SingerI must have read it at least a dozen times.

So impressed with its contents, that I decided then and there that the September issue had to be an Environmental/ Eco-Pagan edition.

I busied myself with research and inspiring others to contribute to my theme and endeavoured to write my own article based on what my research had revealed. World's End is the result.

Ironically, whilst collating this issue, Dragonfly and I witnessed our own Environmental Disaster taking place in the vacant lot next to our residence.

What we witnessed was nothing short of Environmental Vandalism as the "cowboy" sub-contractors up-rooted all and any trees which where in their way. Dragonfly, was particularly devastated when they up-rooted the Liquid Amber which she has been photographing and using in her column to mark the seasons and issues.

I was equally appalled when the crane-driver deliberately knocked down branches of the 50 year old Willow on our property, just because the over hanging branches were in his way. Mind you our land-lord hasn't got Council approval to cut the willow down yet and this is holding up his own subletting of the land which we currently reside on.

If you wish to see both photographs and video of this Ecological Abuse just click here.

Without further ado, please journey onwards and read more on how we can protect Mother Earth.
