    Paul Devereux's Support for Guardians of Ilkley Moor

    Post  Paulus on Thu Oct 20, 2011 5:38 am

    The internationally respected author, researcher and specialist in prehistoric sites, Dr Paul Devereux, has today come on board and given support to the 'Guardian of Ilkley Moor', saying:

    "This is all most concerning. I have noticed a tendency for artistic approaches to the past to often (not always) screw up sites or their understanding. Today we understand art as self expression, but art before art was something different and shouldn't be mixed up with current concepts. It would be better for artists to spend time trying to understand the meanings behind prehistoric rock art, and/or the placing of ancient sites in the landscape -- a learning and non-intrusive approach -- rather than the physical imposition of current notions, in ignorance."

    Huge thanks for your support Paul. You can read his own words on the 'Guardians' Facebook-site, here:

    If you think you are beaten, you are.
    If you think you dare not, you don't.
    If you'd like to win but think you can't,
    It's almost certain you won't.
    Life's battles don't always go
    To the stronger or faster man,
    But sooner or later, the man who wins
    Is the man who thinks he can.

    Walter D Wintle.

    Talking to my old hoppo, reminded me of this.
    I needed that inspiration. Thanks John.

    Delighted Paul Devereaux has got on board. HURRAH


    I'm now spending time over the emergency situation at Thornton Le dale where they are today (or yesterday? )discussing whether or not to allow Moorfield energy company to plonk a meg gas station next to this beautiful village.
    Has the world gone mad all of a sudden?
    Thornton Le Dale today, Ilkley Moor tomorrow......

    Yes Tricia, the world has gone mad. We won't have any nice countryside/moorlands/national parks soon because all these companies, many from the USA or some other country, want to spoil everything that doesn't belong to them - it belongs to us. There's something similar going on on the Fylde Coast which may have recently caused two earth tremors. Our beautiful (green countryside) is slowly disappearing from in front our our eyes.

    There's no evidence that the many nuclear power stations, on the eastern shore of Japan, discharging filth into the sea was the cause of the recent tsunami. Still you have to wonder?
    Nature, seems to be well quipped with self correcting mechanisms, and a capacity to restore environmental/ecological balance. This is not to suggest a vengeful mind at work. Simply an observation of the way things happen in the pattern of conflicting, competing energies.
