Spring has come to south-western Australia.

October 6th, 2008

So its that time of the year again.  Finally… spring has come.

I recently watched a short film about the transcendent importance of our fixing the problem of global climate change – you can watch this important film here.  But as significant as the message of this film is – it couldn’t be more significant really – sometimes one needs to return to the concrete reality of a walk in the park.  This last weekend I was in King’s Park.  Here you can see some of the colours that have ignited the south-west of Australia this last week or two.

Climate change is a clear and present danger.  We should acknolwedge this and become politcally active in meeting it.  However, we would be foolish if we didn’t also leave plenty of space in our minds and our spirits to celebrate the glowing, living present.  Lets usher in the season of abundance with a deep appreciation for this land.
