Where is the Water--PART TWO

This is an 11min audio segment-- part 2 in a series as part of a larger project....

From what source does your life spring?

Do your dreams of the future of the world include descendants of the next 150 years--or 7 generations ?

Do your ancestors teach you your place in a world under threat?

Water: An essential need for life, without which humans cannot live more than three days...  Human beings in different cultures have correspondingly different relationships to water.  Most traditional indigenous humans--often hunter-gatherer, tribal-based cultures--have a relationship with water based on respect for its life, and its limitations:  They don't take more water than needed;  what they take they return;  what they return is revitalized--not toxic --to the landbase.

The culture within which most listeners to this show live--a FAR cry from what I just described--is an industrial one:  Mechanized and mass produced for maximum consumption , regardless of the needs of watersheds and landbases.

Sometimes natural or human-made disasters, such as hurricanes or wars, devastate water supplies.  Recent examples include hurricanes Ike and Gustav.  On another scale, in a new documentary, called "FLOW"  (an acronym for "For the Love Of Water"), filmmaker Irena Salina documents the critical global water battles  both current and future.  A similar alarm is sounded in Maude Barlow's book, __The Blue Covenant__

Given that watersheds everywhere are under assault  ...  given that this industrial culture's infrastructures are collapsing ...  I ask the question:

"If something happened to your water supplies, do you know where you'd get your daily needs?"

Here are some answers on a Summer day, 2008, in Buffalo, New York.  Note that the answers vary according to each person's culturally-based relationship to their landbase....


I ask YOU now:  If something happened to your water supplies, do you know where you'd get your daily needs?

I'd like to hear your answers.  Please call:  1 (800) ROX - 0715 --That's:  1 (800) 769 - 0715.  Or, Email:  radioroxanne@spiritmorphstudio.com

Special Thanks to Hal Walker  for his song "Water Cycles".

Thank you for listening!!!!

These are a series of mixed media collages that use found images such as postcards and greeting cards.

They are made in a stream-of- consciousness manner--In other words, I play with pre-existing images and, using paint, pencils, oils, pastels, etc., create new images. The result surprises me and the titles often arrive in the same stream-of-consciousness way as the images...
