John Moriarity
I hesitate to speak of John Moriarity because any approach will seem shallow such was the span of the man, and his integrity. I claim no special knowledge of his work but the bits I have encountered have been dazzling: beyond categorisation. Somewhere between philosophy, mythology and mysticism but always with a deep sense of respect for the earth. John Moriarty died in 2007 surrounded by family and friends at his home near the Horses' Glen at the foot of Mangerton Mountain. He had spent some years also in Connemara where he had lived up the road from John O'Donoghue (Anam Cara). I mention these matters to pass our Leader's "mountain relevance" test. He was of the outdoors. Of nature. A lover of the Great Earth. Please please watch out for a wonderful film DREAMTIME REVISITED. "The film weaves together contemporary and archive material, with excerpts from some of Moriarty’s key talks, in a labyrinthine invocation of his "dream-vision" of Ireland, following Moriarty’s mythological lead into the depths of the nation’s Dreamtime." The primary point of reference , the fulchrum, the prism, about and through which the images move, is Moriarity's Mangerton home. I found the experience breathtaking. The "trailer" ( http://vimeo.com/37167596 ) does not do justice to the lyrical beauty of the full film. This is a Film By Dónal Ó Céilleachair & Julius Ziz
