This is a quick thank you post to.....
first of all the talented Leanne at homemade rainbows weblog here in Brisbane. She is one of the wonderful people who has responded to the
call out to bloggers to be part of a mail art event
I posted 5 mights ago at both my blogs... see previous post... by posting a story on her blog about the mail-art event and the residency project as a whole. Then she went on to discuss the film "Food Inc" which took the intervention of many locals here in Brisbane to seek/demand a screening here of this timely and important film. For some this is another version of what they are fully aware of... but for many it will be a revelation and... it must be said a critical revelation of the industrialisation of food in the US - a story that is replicated here and elsewhere to a significant extent...and therefore - globally - relevant viewing for all.
Just skip over to Leanne's blog and you will find the trailer to watch of this film. And you will find the most wonderful photos and posts written by Leanne that bring such grace and delight to the everyday life.
