We wish our members and readers a peaceful Christmas and offer this Alternative Nativity for your contemplation.



The artist Geoff Francis, who allowed us to use his photo Life Dance for the cover of our autumn newsletter, has kindly agreed to our use of this painting, the original in oil on canvas. Click on the image to enlarge it.

This is from Geoff’s Social Conscience series – ‘to illustrate the plight of animals who come under the control of our own species and strongly question that dominion.’

Art cards of the painting, with others from Geoff’s Natural World series, are available for sale.
