to be ripped apart
thrown into a skip
and swapped for another
that’s enough said
about some old greenhouse

Is this any old rubbish flung by someone round here?
Or was it all whipped along in the air
by the wind…
caught by chance on the wire?
Or has each thing been placed here with considerable care…
turned now into something quite precious…

it is a temporary thing
the rubbish stays a bit longer

touch the rose for summer
Ah yes the shopping! I thought I would walk over to the field along a thicket covered road which cuts away towards the sun. I suddenly found this happening by the field gate. First shot!

and so it rose a little more…..
How far the horizon from here I do not know!
Couldn’t resist catching the old blackberry grabbing the light. The peach light under the sun and thorns is an old paper bag looking like a piece of crushed satin right now!
(Press to see)
Back home now, in the garden and over the fence, the sun had followed me…..

Along the road a tree was silently catching its own bit of orange ~~~~.
Just then the van rolled up with the groceries. Shopping! Oh yes, that stuff I had ordered on the internet last night; nearly forgot!~ Best way to shop!!!

The kids are so good at playing they now travel with the orchestra they made, playing Beethoven!
Each instrument played, is made from rubbish found in the slums of Paraguay by the young person playing it. It is where these kids live and it is music from their hearts. They talk about it here in the two following short clips.
What a change from all the other rubbish going on in the world!
If you can stay here on this post for a bit longer play these two extra clips from the Ted lectures with Favio Chavez Orchestra Director who tells how it all started (film October 2013)
