What is the Nature of a True Gift? Thought-provoking Conversations on It’s A Question of Balance with Ruth Copland

As the holidays approach our minds turn to gifts. British essayist, novelist and poet Robert Louis Stevenson observed “To be rich in admiration and free from envy, to rejoice greatly in the good of others, to love with such generosity of heart that your love is still a dear possession in absence or unkindness - these are the gifts which money cannot buy.” Ruth Copland features her Out and About show on ‘What is the nature of a true gift?’

Do we still think of things like this as gifts? Or has the march of consumerism made us view gifts as predominantly material items? Giving gifts can be as much a joy for the giver as for the receiver but has gift-giving become a barter exchange where we try to give gifts of equal value to what we will receive? Or do we still gifts to engender joy with no expectation of a return? Maybe a good maxim is the Arabic proverb “If you have much, give of your wealth; if you have little, give of your heart.” In tribal cultures, a gift is given in the knowledge that it will keep being given and never be stagnant. Why do YOU give gifts and what is a true gift to you?

Why Are We So Busy? Thought-Provoking Conversations on It’s A Question of Balance with Ruth Copland

Experts in the past thought with time-saving technology we’d have so much leisure in the future we wouldn’t know what to do with it! Sadly this has not materialised and time seems the scarcest resource of all. This feels even more true as the holidays approach and we try to squeeze enjoyable social events and gift purchasing into already hectic schedules. Why are we so busy? Is it our perception of time that has changed or do we really have more to do? Ruth Copland features her Out and About show asking ‘Why are we so busy?’

Homelessness - Is it Everyone's Problem? Thought-Provoking Conversations on It's A Question of Balance with Ruth Copland

Conversations with DownTown Streets Team personnel, Homelessness activist Joan Baez, and homeless woman Dora give insights into this complex problem and also reason for hope – for the homeless themselves and for communities affected by the issue. This week Ruth Copland presents an encore show 'Homelessness – is it everybody’s problem?' Homelessness is a pervasive issue – highly challenging for those experiencing it and also for the communities trying to find a solution to the homeless on their streets. Ruth carried out some really interesting interviews at the inauguration of Downtown Streets Team in Santa Cruz in 2017 including speaking with folk legend Joan Baez who is active in trying to support the homeless. The conversations she had on the streets of Santa Cruz cover topics that are just as relevant and important today so we hope you enjoy listening to this encore of them. Downtown Streets Team initiative has gone from strength to strength and is a great success in Santa Cruz today.
