REVIEW THAT BOOK!
Most of us finish a book and put it aside, perhaps with a cursory comment to a spouse or companion: “Great story! Interesting characters. Learned a lot.” Few ever think of writing a book review, let alone posting one.
In recent weeks we've posted two great new Green Interviews, with Alastair McIntosh and Yvon Chouinard – and I haven't blogged about either of them. Mea culpa!
Alastair McIntosh is one of Scotland’s greatest social and environmental thinkers, a theologian, and the man largely responsible for the first major reforms of feudal Scottish land-owning since the Battle of Culloden in 1746.
In an upcoming Green Interview, composer Scott Macmillan and librettist Jennyfer Brickenden talk about their magnificent environmental composition "The Celtic Mass for the Sea." The Green Interview will also be posting a complete video of a live performance of the Mass, captured on video on June 9 on the Halifax Waterfront, as one of our Special Presentations.
We’ve just posted our interview with Dr. Gregory Cajete, a brilliant Native American educator who teaches at the University of New Mexico, who is an eloquent expositor of the aboriginal understanding of the “nature of nature," a way of knowing that combines experiencing and feeling with understanding.
