Mountain Fair

Posted on 14/08/2016 in mountain by

If you’ve held a Dark Mountain book in your hands, you’ll know that we give as much thought to the artwork that runs through its pages as we do to the writing. A few weeks ago, we made a call-out for writers to contribute to this autumn’s special issue on the theme of ‘the sacred’.

Drawing on his experience as a graffiti artist in Belfast and his exploration of the collaborative techniques that produced the illuminated manuscripts of the Middle Ages, Thomas is putting together a team of artists to illuminate this issue of Dark Mountain.

Bye, bye blogger. You’ve been good to me, but it’s time to move on. Time to move on to a new website that fully captures the essence of the blog and has an actual web store where items can be purchased securely on-line without having to call me with a credit card number. A lot of you did just that and I appreciate every single one of you. You all have helped make Black Mountain Cycles what it is today.

I’m not really sure how I fell into this. I suppose it’s all …

Welcome to the official Cableway website. Find essential info for planning your visit to Table Mountain. This can all sound very cloying. Western middle class people going ‘back to the land’ is a modern cliché, and when we think we are hearing that story we tend to react in a particular way, positive or negative depending on our political or cultural persuasions.

The last photo is where it comes down the mountain and goes across the ground. We have followed the spring up the mountain where it comes out in a rocky wall. It will run for a couple weeks and then suddenly stop as fast as it starts. We need to keep people off our driveway so they don’t make a tire rut where the water will then run and cut a channel in the driveway.

My family treated me in special ways for Mother’s Day with flowers, chocolate, …
