Passing on the baton

The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed the photo that's appeared in the sidebar - of my colleague Maud Grainger - and the caption that says Maud will take over this blog when I retire.

I've been posting here for three-and-a-bit years, mostly weekly, and this is the last one I shall do as the Good Lives Programme Leader at Woodbrooke. This is my last day at work, and I'm 'retiring' (whatever that turns out to mean) . . . Maud will take over the blog from the New Year. I may, of course, appear occasionally on a 'guest post', and I shall certainly carry on as an Associate Tutor for Woodbrooke (look out for 'Global Restorative Climate Justice' in June 2013).

I thought I'd leave you with something heartwarming and inspiring to look at. I wrote two weeks ago about materialism and simplicity and re-using the Earth's wealth, not squandering it. Below is a link to a YouTube clip of joy, creativity, talent, work, discipline and ingenuity. They call themselves a 'recycled orchestra' but 'upcycled' would be better (see explanation two weeks ago).

So, here to inspire you is Landfill Harmonic.


  1. Thanks for all the posts, Pam - they've been interesting and challenging and inspiring! Good to see the blog going on to good hands, as well....

  2. I'll say this as a PS, rather than as part of the main post. I have three very different pesonal blogs, in case anyone is interested:

  3. Dear Pam,
    Thanks so much for this blog Pam, and for all your work for Woodbrooke and BYM. In Friendship,
