Being an artist in this world ....
Being able to ACT, even with small actions, to support a cause, is priceless....
NO MORE exploitation of the Planet, of Nature of People.
NO MORE destruction of the waters, the plants, the animals, the soil, the rocks, the air ....
NO MORE support to wars .
NO MORE distasteful greed.

Feeling like one with the world and others.
Another, more private ceremony, held on the beach,
just under the Tate Modern, by full moon ....
It seems that we badly need the return of such ancient practices
to reconnect with the spirit of the natural world.
Deeply moving and transformative ....
