Blessings of life

It was home time at school. We used to gather local children and walked to our primary school as groups every morning. On the way home, we travelled in smaller groups; basically whomever available to tag together, making sure that no body was left behind. We learned to look out for one another like that...

Ideal environment

Even a plant has its own favourite spot over another. I spent 2 years with a Slovenian lady. I was renting a room at the back of her house, and I got to see her work around her garden. She believed in looking after what was under her care. She also believed in adding value... Continue Reading →

Planting trees

I have just returned from a tree planting event yesterday. It started from 8am in the morning, some of us arrived on time and others eventually showed up around mid day. We would have planted 3000 seedlings or what not by 1pm. Great turn out, probably about 100 people all together. Land rover owners group... Continue Reading →

Having worked in a coordinator's role at a reasonably large company, I saw some human drama.

It was in a wealthy area, though who worked in the area to support the wealthy families were not the wealthiest people. So we received the... Continue Reading →

Horse racing and I go back a long way. I come from a place horse racing was a things to stay away from at all cost. The image around horses racing, if you were to picture this, were all grey and dark, and nothing but desperate men walking from the train station to the race... Continue Reading →

Rain

Driving in rain, I contemplated. It started with a few drops, and it soon felt as though it was raining very hard. I thought I would stop my vehicle on the side of the road and record a video; a video of the blinding rain and its sound. As my vehicle came stationary, I thought... Continue Reading →

Peace precinct

So we visited a garden. It's interesting, people want to discuss dark topics anytime my nationality comes up in a conversation. Japanese whaling in the southern ocean, dolphin slaughter in Taiji, War memorial in Canberra ( which is essentially the record of Australian folks fighting Japanese off the continent), and Japanese garden in Cowra (...
