PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A DONATION TO THE RAINFOREST TRUST

The Trusts major goal is the purchase of rainforest around the world in order to protect it from deforestation. To create wildlife corridors between reserves and protect endangered species. If indigenous tribes occupy the land their homes and way of life are protected too.

So far more then 8 million hectares have been protected around the world including Australia.

For more information see Rainforest Trust Australia.

We can feel empowered, there is a lot we can all do. 

Sometimes we cannot help our local area no matter how many letters we write but we can see the bigger picture and we can show support for those that can make changes.

 

The Garden of Eden   2020

Tree's killed, vegetation cleared and poisoned.

All over our world.

I have seen it all.

A new neighbour, more trees gone.

The destruction continues year after year.

Old timer snakes are captured.

Out of the garden of Eden!

The fairy wrens, the finches, the lizards, the whipbirds.

The natives.

Nowhere to hide. No home.

 

The kookaburras and cockatoos are going crazy,

WHY? WHY? WHY?

This time it's fire danger.

Lets get rid of all trees!

The chainsaw sings at my place and my neighbour waters the wasteland and smiles.

 

Grass is growing.

I look to the future.

I plant little trees.

Swamp mahogony, paperbark, tuckaroo.

I have done my research.

My power lies in nurturing.

I am part of this beautiful place. 

It will grow and mature.

This power is in each of us.

To give to nature, is to give to ourselves.

 

 

 

 

Heavens here on Earth.

TRACY CHAPMAN 1994

You can look to the stars and search for answers.

Look for God and life on different planets.

Have your faith in the ever after.

While each of us holds inside the map to the labyrinth.

And heaven's here on earth.

 

We are the spirit. The collective conscience.

We create the pain and the suffering and the beauty in this world.

In our faith in humankind. 

In our respect for what is earthly.

In our unfaltering belief in peace and love and understanding.
