Electric Eden

This book by Rob Young is a work of genius. Am taking it slow because the content is so fascinating . The chapter about Vashti Bunyan is worth the price alone. Am reading about William Morris , Arnold Bax and all kind of stuff that sets the mind racing. The chapter is called " Orgy on the Green" . Amazing insights into the work of Cecil Sharp ,Vaughn Williams,  Holst and a host of English musicians  and artists.
In this technology driven age it would appear we might just be missing something important. Maybe we may need to look backwards to move forward?
In other news there have been some awesome sunsets recently.
