Somewhere down the line, somewhere in our history we became disconnected, we lost our way
At some point in our past we forgot that everything is connected
We startes to think that we were the masters.
everything was ours for the taking,
Everything on and in the Earth was ours
the world was ours to conquer.
At some point in our past we stopped taking only what we needed
And started taking what we wanted
And we took, and we took it all
we wanted it and want it all.
Now we live in a disconnected, disjointed and broken world as a consequence for our actions
Honour has disappeared
Along with our connection to the planet, it's Gods, Goddesses our ancestors, the spirits of the land and our values.
We are becoming more and more distant, not only from the planet but from eachother.
We work, go home and switch on our TVs, computers and gaming consoles
We plug ourselves into the grid.
and we sit and watch and disconnect even more from a world we have created.
Seeking escape in media and multi media.
Trapped in a mindset that things matter.
I need that... Thing
Health related issues are rising just as fast as mental health issues.
The year the Earth hit back
And we felt it.
Boy did it hit us hard
Now We live in a disjointed and shattered world.
Yet.. Somewhere, deep inside of each of us, a switch is being flicked.
That part of our DNA which was once our ancestors,
That part, which is in each of us has been turned on
More and more people are once again turning to the old ways, the forgotten ways.
Seeking to reconnect with the old gods, with nature, the spirits and our ancestors.
The entire earth is filled with magick.
If we just took the time to relearn the ways of our ancestors we would know that we are one and the same.
But, it is not enough to connect with nature and her spirits, we must learn to live with and within her.
Outside of the social confines of need and wanting
my name is Jim, welcome to my world.
I am documenting my journey as I reconnect with nature and relearn the ways of my ancestors
I would love it if you would join me.

I lost about 80% of the hearing in my left ear in spring of this year, no idea how or why but I have. The thing is, the pitch of some sounds can cause me actual physical pain, kids screaming is a good one, shouting is another.
When there is a lot of noise going on at the same time I get what I can only describe as an audio over load, as my good ear tries to pick out and prioritise what I need to hear over the background hustle and bustle, sometimes my right ear just overloads and throws everything at me which basically deafens me, I am hearing almost nothing except white noise in my left ear and I am hearing every sound available in my other.
Anyway, we have workmen round at the moment removing the cavity wall insulation so we can get new (better) put in, its part of some kind of government scheme which we have qualified for, replacement insulation and a new boiler..
As you can imagine, there is lots of noise, there is a pump going, lots of drilling and banging and then there is Gizmo, our little Jack Russel who is barking, constantly barking, for the last hour.
Thing is, little Gizmo`s bark is one of those sounds which has a pitch that hurts, especially when he rolls out half a dozen barks, one after the other... Ouch..
I`m hoping that the workmen manage to get all the insulation out and the new back in today, better still, this morning, otherwise they say that they will have to come back tomorrow to put the new stuff in, which means, chances are that they will be here with their noise when I finish work.
On top of that, deep down I know that I am stressing out a bit about the damage that they will do to the new lawn I planted earlier this year. I am rather proud of it, but it is still in its infancy so is easily damaged.
Hang on, they have turned their pump down, they might be finished.
That`s it for this one, I`m going to make coffee and get some pain killers into me.
It has come to my attention that the British government as well as other works government's are talking about something which has been d...
