It’s impossible to describe the treasury of treasuries that has sprung up before me over the few days since our final One Garden session of 2019.

On 2nd Jan 2020 we will weave the first tapestry – 10AM please and RSVP email or text. For winter-into-spring I have the working title of Plato’s Cave & ‘Skin, Flesh, Bones & Marrow’

SO WHAT ARE SOME OF THE UPCOMING TEXTS?

TEXT 1 At present you can see the filmic masterpiece Three Colours Blue, White & Red on MUBI. You can join MUBI here – https://mubi.com/ – free for one month or buy a copy on Amazon or elsewhere.

To read a bit about the trilogy here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Colours_trilogy

The films are about Liberté, fraternité, égalité, – In the trilogy, "Blue" is the anti-tragedy, "White" is the anti-comedy, and "Red" is the anti-romance. All three films hook us with immediate narrative interest. They are metaphysical through example, not theory: Kieslowski tells the parable but doesn’t preach the lesson. – From the great film critic Roger Ebert’s review – https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/great-movie-three-colors-trilogy-blue-white-red

NB I have the film script of ‘Blue’ which I will send you once you’ve watched the film.
