Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

The Land Down Under

QUOTE - SYDNEY, Australia (AP) - Pope Benedict XVI says the world's natural resources are being squandered by ``insatiable'' consumption and urges people to care more for the environment.
The pope also condemns television and the Internet for exalting violence and sexual exploitation as entertainment.
Benedict made the comments on Thursday in a speech to hundreds of thousands of pilgrims gathered in Australia for the Roman Catholic church's World Youth Day.
He says nonviolence, sustainable development, justice and care for the environment are of vital importance for humanity. UNQUOTE
