After what seems like months of dry weather, with just a couple rainbow storms in-between, the Earth is finally soft again…We have finally had rain, summer storms, lightning, heavy rain & showers daily for nearly a week…. Wahoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Prior to this the Earth below my feet outside of the garden was hard, dry & crispy…. A sad and miserable feeling ensures, realising once here stood rainforest, lush creeks, deep humus, ecology, abundance, diversity, giant trees, flowing rivers, regular rain, deep fertility, myriads of animals, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians, insects ~ Life & Community… Knowing all this changed with economy, greed, control, ruthless and brutal force, knowing the men and women who profiteered from this sacred Earth left us only hard compacted Earth, eroded and decimated ecology, I feel a deep sadness, some anger, some rage, some pain and suffering… Yet I carry on, I keep walking through the desert, knowing commitment to restoring Ecological Habitat will eventually bring back fertility, peace, harmony, co-creation tribe & beauty..
None but ourselves can heal this Planet, is there anything more important than planting, nurturing & regenerating?
Below is an essay written with images, they tell thousands of stories, they feel.. I hope they inspire, heal, bring joy and hope ~ co-creating Paradise is no easy job, but it’s highly rewarding, enlightening & magical..
