The Taktsang Palphug Monastery, or Paro Taktsang, is a Buddhist temple complex which clings to a cliff, 3120 meters above the sea level on the side of the upper Paro valley in Bhutan. It is also known as the Tiger's Nest (Taktsang in Tibetan language literally means "Tiger's lair”). For millennia, Bhutan had been isolated: a land of devout Buddhism and pristine natural beauty, cradled by the Himalayas, which served as a bulwark against both military aggressors and modernity. In 2006, King Jigme Singye Wangchuck shocked his subjects by unilaterally ending Bhutan’s absolute monarchy, leading an effort to draft a constitution and institute free elections, a process that culminated, in 2008, with the country’s first general election. In the same year, the monarchy was handed to Wangchuck’s eldest son Jigme Khesar Namgyel, known as Dragon King, who reigns to this day. The independence of Bhutan has endured for centuries and it has never been colonized in its history.

In its place, it has championed GNH, an ethos of environmental sustainability, cultural preservation and holistic civic contentment.

Every five years under the direction of the Centre for Bhutan Studies and GNH Research, survey-takers conduct questionnaires across the country. The most recent survey, in 2015, found that 8 percent of the people were "deeply happy," 35 percent identified as "extensively happy," and 47.9 percent registered as "narrowly happy”. With WiFi-ready coffee shops emerging in Thimphu, youngsters in particular are flocking in droves away from rural labor toward the brighter lights of the capital. So as Bhutan’s GDP grows, raising “happiness” is likely to become that every bit harder.

Willy Lott’s House at Flatford, East Bergholt, Suffolk, UK from the series #MerrieAlbion

Visitors to Constable Country, as it came to be called in his own lifetime, are often surprised by how small it first seems on the ground. Many of the sites of John Constable’s major paintings, such as The Hay Wain (1821), are located within a few miles of Flatford Mill. In the past twenty years many of the views around Willy Lott’s House have been cleared of blocking trees and vegetation, so that the landscape on the ground now imitates that in Constable’s pictures, no matter what license the painter took in his own time assembling pictures from a variety of sources. Constable’s paintings of Suffolk have been credited for putting parts of the country previously thought of as unremarkable on the picturesque ‘map’. Here a member of the National Trust holds up a replica of one of Constable’s paintings to visiting tourists. To British Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin, Constable’s landscapes were so deeply etched into the landscape that they had ceased to be separable from it: ‘Of a plough team coming over the brow of a hill, the sight that has been seen in England since England was a land’.

During the Second World War the Butlin's camp was used as the site of HMS Royal Arthur.

In the week Theresa May triggered Article 50, the start of the two-year negotiation period to take Britain out of the EU, ramblers explore the Seven Sisters chalk cliffs. For many, the Seven Sisters between the Seaford and Eastbourne coastline are symbolic of Britain; they were recently voted one of the top twenty breath-taking views in the UK. As Stephen Purcell, who teaches English and Comparative Literary Studies at the University of Warwick, comments, ‘The cliffs are used in the play to symbolize a boundary, one between the known and the unknown. That’s what the cliffs represent to many, a boundary between land and sea, high and low, between Britain and the outside.’ In June 2017, two massive rock falls took place in less than twenty-four hours along the chalk cliffs, sending tons of rock crashing into the sea, and outlining the fragility of this landscape.

Jigme Singye Wangchuck, Bhutan’s fourth Druk Gyalpo, or Dragon King, is an avid cyclist who can often be found pedalling the steep foothills that ring the capital city, Thimphu. All Bhutanese know about the king’s passion for cycling, to which he has increasingly devoted his spare time since December 2006, when he relinquished the crown to his eldest son. This photograph was taken during the ‘Tour of the Dragon’ road race in 2014. It is a 268km cycle that stretches from Bumthang, in central Bhutan, to Thimphu on the country’s western border. It is a spectacular, albeit gruelling, journey, following a route through unspoiled forests and fields, over rolling river valleys and past mountainside farms, touching just a few tiny villages along the way. Cyclists must tackle four mountain passes that range in height from just under 4,000 to nearly 11,000 feet; in places the road grade reaches 5 percent and the straight uphill climbs stretch on for nearly 40km. The 9th Tour takes place on 1 September 2018.

It is also known as the Tiger's Nest (Taktsang in Tibetan language literally means "Tiger's lair”). For millennia, Bhutan had been isolated: a land of devout Buddhism and pristine natural beauty, cradled by the Himalayas, which served as a bulwark against both military aggressors and modernity. In 2006, King Jigme Singye Wangchuck shocked his subjects by unilaterally ending Bhutan’s absolute monarchy, leading an effort to draft a constitution and institute free elections, a process that culminated, in 2008, with the country’s first general election. In the same year, the monarchy was handed to Wangchuck’s eldest son Jigme Khesar Namgyel, known as Dragon King, who reigns to this day. The independence of Bhutan has endured for centuries and it has never been colonized in its history.

그대 나의 작은 심장에
귀 기울일 때에
입을 꼭 맞추어
내 숨을 가져가도 돼요
저무는 아침에 속삭이는 꿈
영롱한 달빛에 괴롭히는 꿈
네 눈을 닮은 사랑
그 안에 지는 계절
파도보다 더 거칠게 내리치는
오 그대여 부서지지마
바람 새는 창틀에 넌 추워지지마
이리와 나를 꼭 안자
오늘을 살아내고 우리 내일로 가자
내가 너의 작은 심장에
귀 기울일 때에
입을 꼭 맞추어
어제에 도착했습니다
오 그대여 부서지지마
바람 새는 창틀에 넌 추워지지마
이리와 나를 꼭 안자
오늘을 살아내고 우리 내일로 가자

Our Playground Plant Sale was fantastic! A big, big thank you to everyone who came along - looking forward to seeing those sunflowers grow! Also, huge thanks are owed to #Stokey legends @growingcommunities, @n16greenroom, @evergreenandoutrageous and @botaniqueworkshop for donating such an array of gorgeous greenery. All the money raised - nudging £200! - will go towards lovely activities for our Grazebrook kids 😊 Beautiful pics courtesy of our very own PSA co-secretary and photographer @simonrphoto 💕🌻🌼🌾🌱🌿🌸
