welcome to my little island….
its a follow on to last weeks island exercise where we’d landed and set up a community on the island. After landing and knowing nobody was coming to get us, I reckoned on small settlements made from wood and bamboo, and the solar cells from the rescue boat could power vital equipment (!)
we would live off what we would catch produce and forage, fish, crabs fruits and berries.
Hi Folks – Anybody expecting a post yesterday, I do apologise – I slightly overdid it and ended up taking to my bed earlier than I first thought I would!
Note to self – don’t go Marching off to the computer store for an Ipad Cover after an Afternoon Shift at the war Museum….
Anyway, here’s my report on Tuesdays Memory Workshop….
What’s your idea of Utopia?
As part of an Activity to engage an open mind we had Carte Blanche to create our own perfect world
Think of Sid Meiers Civilization Game but on Paper…
we had to answer questions on
What the climate and landscape would be,
What kind of Animals and Plants were on this world
What people were like on this island
What they did for fun …. (Careful..!!!! Inky)
Where they worked
What kind of Place was it like
By the end of the session – i’d created my own little island community, with sandy beaches, Tropical flowers and fruits , full of colourful flowers and surrounded by cocoa trees clear blue seas with lots of fish and plots for vegetables – so we could have fish and chips –
I resisted the temptation to go all wonka and have Lemonade lakes and edible grass – maybe that’s an idea for another island! :))
When the time is right – it’s perfect. Azure blue seas that you can see the local wildlife in if you dip your toes in the water, Gentle breezes to take the heat off from the Ionian sunshine and then there’s the fish that go swimming around your feet.
On a Clear Day – you can get a wonderful view of neighbouring Kefalonia.
