MIKE BROWN'S BLOG

24-7 Street has moved to https://noticeing.com I'm starting this blog to try and introduce some new ideas into the collective consciousness in these slightly unsettling times. I was born in 1952 and I'm English.

IS THERE SOMETHING THAT CAN BE DONE TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF NEW HOUSES?

Yes, build them out of stone! Go out into the countryside or to a beautiful old town or village and you will find the buildings made of stone. The modern industrialisation of building has caused this. The powers that be claim they are improving house building and being eco-friendly by increasing insulation but it's just a red herring, these new houses are directly connected into a system that is totally dependent on fossil fuel and which doesn't connect or blend in with the countryside. We are spoining the beautiful natural world with this urbanisation!

COMMUNITY

I did this picture about 20 years ago. It's symbolic and represents new housing development returning to a more natural ecology, blending with nature and the landscape around us rather than dominating it and being disconnected from it.



I am an advocate for buildings made from stone and natural materials believing that contemporary buildings and landscapes made from concrete, asphalt, steel, plastics and other factory made components spoil the beauty of nature and the quality of the environment contributing to stress and other modern day illnesses.

EARTH AIR FIRE WATER

The four elements - Swords represent Air which represents Thoughts which are in our Inner World - Pentacles represent Earth the Physical World we live in - Wands represent Fire and Cups Water, Fire and Water are like Yin and Yang, Active and Passive, Left and Right.



In the picture Air is above Earth below and Fire and Water on the Left and the Right represent the ins and outs, ups and downs, rights and wrongs we experience in life!
