We Borrow The Earth From Our Children

The environmentalist saying “We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children” is used by Emic as the title of his work for CNB15/Belfast Almanac Environment conference. Here are two details, of a bee and (below) a hummingbird, and finally a full shot which shows a tree growing from the mind of a boy. The origins of the phrase are – fittingly – unknown.

      Hello. It’s on what’s being called “harbour promenade”. Look at the Big Fish and head left/north towards Clarendon dock.
