Earth Pathways diaries and wall calendars never disappoint and the 2021 versions are no exception; superbly practical and stunningly beautiful.
The calendar features full page-size artwork and begins with Shirelle Young’s fantastic owl in flight, Silent Flight, featured for January. I also adored Sue Wookey’s Badger Queen with Clare Dubois’ Daring to Love Deeply (March). One of Sharon Turner’s fantastic drums is featured for August and Susan Latchford demonstrates the versatility of her talent with a poem for November. To end the year on a highlight December featured the inspiring poem We are the Ones by Jehanne Mehta with the amazing image Prayer by Rosa Davis. The calendar also features star sign Astrology for the year.
The A5 size diary begins with a great first page featuring colourful art with a call to “smile at everyone you meet” by Annie b. Each month of the year contains a snippet of wisdom or thought in prose or poetry, illustrated by art or photography. Following these is a page-per-month calendar for 2021 and a seasonal calendar for 2022 so you can plan ahead, together with space for your own notes.
As it says on the back of the diary this is “more than just a diary, it is a networking resource and inspiration for the growing community of people who are willing to actively create positive change in their lives for the benefit of the earth”. And at the current time we need the inspiration, the coming together in the spirit of community and the power of beauty more than ever.
Produced by a not-for-profit co-operative based in Derbyshire’s Peak District the diary is in a week to view format and the calendar is month to view. Buy direct from https://www.earthpathwaysdiary.uk/ as a percentage of profits goes to ‘seed-fund’ projects that benefit the Earth and buy early, as they are popular. Makes a fantastic gift although very hard to give away so buy one for yourself as well!
