argylesock says… Today (21st March) is the International Day of Forests. We’re all invited to tell about our local forests. Here in Britain, we’re about to enter the season in which bluebells (Hyacinthoides non-scripta and its naturalised relatives H.hispanica and H. italica) carpet many of our woods – an indication of ancient woodland, and so very beautiful. Last week I invited Visit Woods to add my local bluebell wood to their guide to Walks in Bluebell Woods and they agreed 🙂 I’m not going to name the particular wood here, but if you’re in Britain, I hope you’ll admire your local bluebells a few weeks from now.
“Making films is the contemporary art form really, essentially you can put across a lot of facts about anything but its how you ‘move’ people that matters, how you tell stories. That’s what ultimately matters. Someone I heard recently said ‘what we think leads to conclusions, what we feel leads to actions’ – Oscar winning filmmaker Nick Park, the magician behind Wallace and Gromit announcing UN global short film contest for forests 2012.
‘Every single one of us, all 7 billion, has our physical, economic and spiritual health strongly tied to the health of our forest ecosystems’- quote from UN International Year of forests video, 2011
