Wild Wisdom

Wild Wisdom

Green Renaissance

“If you spend a long time with any species in the wild, you are encountering the species as they truly are. I describe it as wild wisdom.” – Jenny Cullinan Jenny dedicates all of her time to studying and learning from bees in the wild. She believes that we need to fundamentally change how we interact with bees, from housing and feeding, to moving them from one area to another to pollinate our crops. Let’s let the wild bees show us how.

Simon Beck is a snow artist who creates huge designs in the snow by simply walking in a pair of snowshoes. He believes that inspiration goes before motivation, and nature’s perfect patterns inspire him to create something new every time out. This short documentary by Flash Studio follows Beck’s preparations for a piece he did in Stryn, Norway, on a day of good snow. Watch and join him as he catches a first glimpse of a masterpiece that, after many steps and calculations, would most likely be covered in two days. Follow Simon on Instagram HERE

Lyrics

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No, I won’t be afraid
Oh, I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

So darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand, stand by me
Stand by me

Stand by me, oh, stand by me

Darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now, stand by me
Stand by me
Whenever you’re in trouble, won’t you stand by me?
Oh, stand by me
Won’t you stand now?
Oh, stand, stand by me, stand by me
Stand by me

 

In it together

In it together

Green Renaissance

The last few weeks have been a roller coaster of intense emotions. All of us, all over the world, have had to start to change the way we do things. Many have cut back on travel plans, some are avoiding crowded spaces, and most have dropped handshakes and hugs for elbow bumps and foot shakes.

As hard as it might be for some of us right now, it seems that what we need is more empathy, understanding, and compassion for one another. Most of us are some version of scared – this is a change and a big change. Like with any change, we don’t know what will happen and how it will turn out. But what we do know for sure, is that we can’t really do too much without each other.

Vocabulary chunks to learn from video :

The conductor is not just a time beater
It has different elements to it
We are going to make music
It’s not a shouting match
Taking the rubbish out
It’s a calling
Infectious energy
Your fellow musicians
A positive vibe
We need positive vibes these days
Ode to Joy
Everybody knows the tune
I could not imagine the world without music
I would like to be a fly on the wall
There you go
Nature is such a powerful force
Belting down with rain
An amazing show of power
The purpose of life
To live life that is full of interesting things
Not stuck in a rut
Read about new things
Be interested
Have you heart open for new ideas
Seeking perfection
