TO MOTHER EARTH
NATURE IS THE CRADLE OF THE HUMAN KIND
After the self-worship and self-goddess attitude of mankind during the triumphant modernity, now the time has come to put this attitude into perspective and leave it behind in favour of a cult of the earth, our cradle and our home wit its extraordinary fabric of living species of which we as human beings are allowed to be part of.
What literature can do to create awareness
Mankind has arrived at a point at which the earth can go in radical different directions. We have to consider what kind of earth we desire.
What can literature contribute as a medicine to prevent that humanity is going the wrong way?
Authors observe and find the words to express what others cannot.
They can provide antidote to the craziness expressed on Facebook, because they think when they write. They look further.
Literature can humanize abstract questions.
Therefore we call upon prominent authors in as many countries in the world to write a letter to Mother Earth or provide an appropriate fragment from their oeuvre.
Writers observe what is happening concerning the planet and have a way with words, combined with a personal view and style.
This will bring about an anthology of creativity, wisdom an insight.
