Value the Marginal
This work I do is a living storying . Some is the story of how I learned to garden on the edge, literally and metaphorically. In permaculture they tell you that the boundaries between ecosystems are the most productive, healthy and diverse. Finding myself at the margins of many worlds, this way of viewing the marginal has been very supportive and helped me to see my differences as healthy, natural and important to the whole ecosystem. It has also helped me not to become lost in the pain and paralysis of alienation and antagonism.
The rest of the story is my conversations and interviews with people I've met along the margins, the magic and community I've found with them. I hope their genius will give you new space to think, imagine and be in the worlds. This will involve you travelling with me and them through many dimensions and experiences. Showing you something of my journey is my attempt to connect with you and to nurture, protect and actively value marginal and ‘wyrd’ experiences and to reclaim some of the monopolised and exploited landscape of my psyche by viewing it as part of a wider ecology of mind.
