EASTER - THE FESTIVAL OF RISING

from the ink black night....

from the depths of slumber....

from the stretched womb....

from the shivering soil....


from the salt march

from robben island

from colvin's bus seat

from the vistula reservoir

from kolbe's offer

from the blood of the stained swat valley bus

from alimamy's clean ebola hospital

from the streets of ferguson

from abu wad's garden

from white helmets

from papadopoulos's crew

from al rashidia's beaded bracelets

from patrick's silence

from tisha beauchmin's heart


non-violence...patience...determination...resistance...courage...gentleness...conviction
...justice...empathy...passion...beauty...service...compassion...renewal...love

it's what makes this tumultuous, disparate, desperate, cruel and catastrophic world...


our most extraordinary, marvellous and beautiful home

to learn to cherish...heal...and...enhance
