Aspen Leaves

IMG_3972Though it may seem that my narrative performance poem Embrace (2017) formed the culmination of my project Alder and Aspen (2016), it turned out to spur a range of new activity. Questions about ways of being in, and experiencing, environments close to home, what it means to be familiar with a natural environment, and why this matters, are relevant as ever. Continuing to keep a  nature diary, my observations and research now feed into my project Water/ Shed, about the burns and rivers in the catchment of the river Dee, and Hidden Wings, a project investigating our encounters with butterflies and moths.
