A Generous, Well Stocked Cupboard

A Generous, Well Stocked Cupboard

A Generous, Well Stocked Cupboard

We turn coconuts into cakes,

brass into trumpets,

pigment and linseed into pastoral landscapes.

Natural ingredients mixed with a bit of soul 

broaden the human experience.


We turn trees into homes,

wool into sweaters,

gardens into dinner.

We live in an era of great comfort.


But the natural world is more than a 

generous, well stocked cupboard 

for all of our human endeavors.

It is what we are, 

and the day calls for us 

to put ourselves back into the story of nature.

To assist the eon tuned working of life. 

To protect and enter cathedrals of earthen floors, 

fir scented walls, 

star lit ceilings, 

as often as we can.
