Models applying from all directions - what a difference... Spring must be in the air.

I really wanted to complete a series - and now there are so many series to complete...

The time has come the Walrus said....

It took a long time for the British explorers to have any understanding of the Aboriginals during the early years. The wisdom, philosophy and deep attachment to the land that they shared with nature seemed trivial and pointless to those colonists.

Although the Aboriginals had a deep attachment to the land, few stayed and protected their plots. Instead they followed the weather patterns across thousands of kilometers, hunting, gathering 'bush tucker' (wild fruits and roots) and they did this without shoes in a land without end.

As a matter of fact, they carried little with them. Primitive spears, or throwing sticks, stone knives and little else. Their philosophy was simple: If you can't carry it, you don't want it. Quite unnerving to the White settlers that brought all manner of comforts with them from England. 

Their counting system also seemed primitive. The concept of 'One, Two, Many' was hardly a way for bartering in the English system.(One is for Me, Two is for me and my wife, Many is 'enough to share with the tribe'.)

Slowly, some of this has worn off on us. We don't need a dozen plates, twenty chairs around a house, or even, a whole house. (As soon as you give away the plates, you don't need a dishwasher - how smart is that?!) We need somewhere simple to protect us from the wind, somewhere to get clean, somewhere to eat. If we are fortunate enough to have friends drop in, we hope they'll bring a plate, or we can eat in shifts. Time to minimize. The gathering part of our lives is passed, the distribution of our 'wealth' to our children is complete. Now let's see how well we exist on the barest minimums. There are plenty of places for the last of our belongings to be gainfully used. But the waste of space that a whole house takes up is no longer for us.

Many of you have dropped in for visits, stayed for a day or a week and moved on to your next destination. That no longer fits our lifestyle. We have not got the space available to have people stay, we haven't got any resources to feed you, and we are not expecting anything to change in the future. We are looking after each other and spending time understanding more about reality and less about the promises of others. We haven't spent a lot of time on here in recent months, and we will spend less. Age, health & time all conjure up new values as we hit them at break-neck speed. But you'd like me to take your photographs? - sure, better buy a camera, put it in my hand, and I'll shoot it. The order of importance of many things, has changed.

Thank you MOST kindly for all of the Favourites, mate. Very kind of you. Going to have to try and drag milady wife up to your neck of the woods sometime when the weather warms a little.

I'm off to Hamilton Island for a week... [link]

Pretty quiet these days, cameras have got very heavy lately. I tend to lurk a little, but save my energy for writing memoirs that will never be read.....

Hope all is well with you.

The bodies do let us down it seems. Mine's holding up pretty well, but gravity will win eventually.

We're in new digs as of August, a bit more than half the size of the previous, but we'd still find a spot for you and Gayle if you ever get out this way again.

Gravity sucks, the grave is gravity on steroids - terminal velocity steroids.

Thanks, I don't see any likelihood of making it there... if I was able to, I'd be ticking off the last on my bucket list - somewhere North of you now and closer to your former place of employment - Aurora Borealis.

Hi. I was wandering if I could use one of your amazing photographs Bartlett's Beach NSW Australia" in a movie I' m making for a contest. It will be on screen for about 4-5 seconds. Is it ok with you?' Thanks in advance.
