Arundhati Roy: “We Need a Reckoning” on Vimeo

Alec Finlay: We all need shelter

Howe is an expression of the notion that the appropriate way to recognise the sun’s fundamental unity with the earth is through the agency of shelter. It is a temple of the sun. This is resonant with what I have already noted, namely that the physical and spiritual aspects of shelter are deeply intertwined in the human psyche. In a complementary way that is what the classical myth of Philemon and Baucis tells us also. If you give freely to others of the hospitality of your hut, you may find that your hut has become transformed into a temple.

a bowl, after Ovid


growing old together

Baucis & Philemon

share this humble home


raking ashes, lighting fires

with the little breath

their frail bodies have left


in the middle of the table

they set their only bounty

a bowl of clear white honey

A week after leaving Euphoria, as we looked at the ocean from a car in a parking lot, it seemed as though we weren’t really seeing the same body of water we saw from the shack’s deck.  The car didn’t push us to feel the forces of the place.  We had to accept the fact that the unfortunate grid-afforded sensation of looking in at the world from somewhere “outside” of it was slowly returning.”
