Green Man Norwich Cloister Walk
Well, being an ecological kind of guy, and knowing the Creator's World is here NOW (and, maybe the afterlife is icing on the cake, and some of us do "Create Hell on Earth for ourselves and others,) it is interesting that William Anderson, in Green Man, The Archetype of our Oneness with the Earth, was a book for sale in the Lincoln Cathedral Bookstore today. I even brought a bronze likeness for my wall on the prairies of Turtle Island to remind me that Mother Earth, may well have been "cloistered" in earlier Christian Times when indigenous people, often those of us who were two spirted, winkte, people, were killed in the name of religion as we did not fit the projected vision of those who had the "right" way of seeing God. Perhaps the church is waking up to having a green presence on earth. Perhaps the Green Man was more available to the people of the land in olden times.
