“Gaia’s Lungs,” an April 2020 eARTh ART painting placed on a pine stump in the woods of south-west England, was created both as an offering as well as an inquiry – a “myceliumical question proposed to our dear Earth about the “crowned virus” that was initiating the bodies and souls of many at the time – including myself. In my own experience, “pathosophy” came to teach me as I swayed between life and death, resulting in an encounter with Pathos, Logos and Sophia and the birth of twin books: Pathosophy: A Living Art – Wisdom born of Grief and Suffering and 9 passAGES to Die Alive. Gaia’s response to my question was in the writing of these books, brought forth through Gratitude, Grace and Grief.
