  • Sat, 14:42: It's arrived #exocide https://t.co/pcKEOkvYQU
  • Sat, 16:05: David Whyte's book on Ecocide is absolutely rivetting but deeply shocking at the same time. It's almost too much to take in, particularly around corporate, executive and scientific misfeasance.
  • Sat, 16:52: Right off to watch @ExeterChiefs do the double.
  • Sat, 20:32: So happy that @ExeterChiefs did the double.
  • Sun, 04:59: "If we are always arriving and departing, it is also true that we are eternally anchored. One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things." — Henry Miller
  • Sun, 06:00: “It is love and friendship, the sanctity and celebration of our relationships, that not only support a good life, but create one. Through friendships, we spark and inspire one another's ambitions.” ― Wallace Stegner, Crossing to Safety
  • Sun, 08:36: Half way through the book Ecocide by David Whyte (not the poet). Much to ponder, particularly around the interplay with legal personality, directors' duties and criminal/civil responsibility.
  • Sun, 09:03: A few years ago (daughter #3 - now 17!). A picture that my late father-in-law lovingly displayed above his desk ❤️. https://t.co/hMd4YGiTI9
  • Sun, 09:24: Nothing beats homemade soup. Butternut squash, carrot, onion and sweet potatoes. What could be easier? Oh, and bit of heat with a smidgen of madras curry powder.

  • Fri, 15:54: Why aren't there more sensible lawyers? When you find someone who is pragmatic and not overly pedantic, it makes all the difference.
  • Fri, 17:10: Just ordered David Whyte's new book (not the poet) "Ecocide: Kill the Corporation Before it Kills Us". I'm on a roll.

  • Sat, 06:00: “A man on foot, on horseback or on a bicycle will see more, feel more, enjoy more in one mile than the motorized tourists can in a hundred miles.” ― Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire
  • Sat, 11:48: I wonder why there is so little conversation around the purpose now of business in a diminshed and diminishing world? Circular, sustainability and greening seem very unlikely to restore the damage to the planet 🌍 and her previous abundance.
  • Sat, 11:53: A few people for me to start following. Also, if you know any earth law 🌍 lawyers on Twitter, I'd love to start following them. https://t.co/z6nkYqYG6I

  • Thu, 16:35: One for you @andowrites https://t.co/CFKa5XbwYS
  • Thu, 17:42: Helping daughter #2 with a mock negotiation for her law degree. This used to be my bread and butter but these days, litigation brings me out in a cold sweat.
  • Thu, 17:47: Pre-ordered your new book @maxjohnporter. I can't wait to see what you made of Bacon's life and death.
  • Thu, 18:09: I'm still working but I don't mind. It's something that I need to sort and having taken a couple of hours off this afternoon, I feel that this is the best time to pick up a few loose ends.
  • Thu, 18:59: Grief breaks me.
  • Thu, 19:08: The power of connection is the greatest human trait. I've been blessed to be touched by a few people that forever changed my life.
  • Fri, 06:00: “Whether we and our politicians know it or not, Nature is party to all our deals and decisions, and she has more votes, a longer memory, and a sterner sense of justice than we do.” ― Wendell Berry
  • Fri, 07:01: It's all been said... https://t.co/1NRmMWHTSw https://t.co/JK1qjlzthC
  • Fri, 07:39: Patriarchy has so much to answer for in terms of the state of the world. I realise that I'm generalising like hell in making this point but there is practically nowhere where its smudged fingerprints don't show up in a unhealthy, negative way.
  • Fri, 07:45: Listening to the two young owls on my walk this morning was the perfect start to the day. I've yet to see them but just listening to their twit twoos grow stronger with each passing day makes me smile and feel the intense joy of nature.

  • Wed, 12:23: You'd have thought with the amount said and written about leadership -- or whatever it's now called! -- we'd have this thing nailed. Perhaps we don't need leaders but better kinship, village-mindedness and to truly understand the meaning of the word "we".
  • Wed, 12:25: Slowly watching over the next couple of nights the documentary "Francis Bacon and the Brutality of Fact". Deeply moving and further insight into what made Bacon such a great artist.
  • Wed, 16:10: @maxjohnporter where I do pre order the new book? I'm a huge fan of Francis Bacon and I know yours will be brilliant. PS. The BBC documentary is still the best thing out there https://t.co/Vkj8wjJsbB
  • Wed, 17:02: @chrisnicholsT2i Is this on your radar? https://t.co/vZ8LWsNDwl
  • Thu, 06:00: “We abuse land because we see it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.” ― Aldo Leopold
  • Thu, 08:25: Still musing on the use of and purview of the word 'we' in conversation, particularly in our hyper-individualistic world.
  • Thu, 08:51: All in https://t.co/FFDRwK4fAE https://t.co/lmaWO0JE2x
  • Thu, 09:12: Just about to book my ticket to hear Stephen Jenkinson. Thanks for putting this together. Julian https://t.co/ZdQt9qq2kf

  • Mon, 18:05: Well done to the person who has cut the s*** out of the hedges tonight. There is practically nothing left for the birds!
  • Mon, 18:12: Die Wise - A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul by Stephen Jenkinson. https://t.co/wmzJ7ynWoM
  • Tue, 05:34: "As a poet I hold the most archaic values on earth. They go back to the Neolithic: the fertility of the soil, the magic of animals, the power-vision in solitude, the terrifying initiation & rebirth, the love and ecstasy of the dance, the common work of the tribe." — Gary Snyder
  • Tue, 07:09: Self-enquiry can, if we're not careful, turn into self-absorbtion.
  • Tue, 07:23: Here again / Nils Frahm - SAYS https://t.co/sMWLBrawu0
  • Tue, 07:46: Currently reading "healing through the dark emotions - The wisdom of grief, fear and despair" by Miriam Greenspan. Again, another book to take my time over, and fully absorb the delicate phrasing and (at times) heart-wrenching stories.
