I have been a bit missing from this blog lately. It has been a difficult time. Time to say goodbye to beloved friends, time to let go, time to take care of others or of myself. Also time to study, to learn to sow, and above all, to wait. And this waiting has bore fruit, namely, in the form of a squash. Thanks to the seed I sow at the beginning of the environmental education’s course, the squash you can see in the image was born, and it gave 46 whole seeds more: a bunch of possibilities of new life.

As it happens to me quite frequently, I arrived there because of stories, or better said, because of the questions people posed me after telling stories about trees, questions I didn’t felt competent to answer. It has been an intense course, learnt al lot from teachers as well as from classmates, and although I have found some answers, my list of questions is getting longer, because environmental education is an ongoing evaluation subject, a lifetime task.

Becoming aware of the seriousness of the climatic emergency situation all of us are provoking has been hard. But I have also been encouraged by knowing about so many little people making little things that are adding more than what it seems, people who finds ways of agreement for growing seeds in a discreetly and simple manner, until they give birth to new green sprouts. Like a group of people from the Gràcia district, who have managed to save the life of a holm oak from a certain death, and whom next Sunday I will share stories… Well, with them and of course with anyone who would like to join. If you want to come to that performance, or to any or the October performances, you cannot it down.
