The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Stunning. Thank you for the post.

On a far more modest scale I am in the process of growing a living willow arbour seat on my allotment. The first plaiting was only done in October so still some way to go. I now have an urge to install a nave of bean poles leading towards it.

I fear the authorities would frown upon more trees.

Interesting, but to say it is entirely out of living trees is obviously VERY wrong.  Mostly out of parts of trees with trees growing in the columns.

There are guide supports, I suppose.  It is a beautiful legacy, and once the trees have become old and well-established, it will be a wonder of the world.  Growing houses might be good, if it happened a little faster.

That looks great now but just imagine how beautiful that will appear in a hundred years time!
