information overload

There is so much bad and sad news about.
And all of it important: Deforestation, Pollution, War Crimes, Domestic Violence, Hate Crimes, Homelessness, and so much more.
To ignore any of it seems a crime in itself. Do I want to be ignorant and unfeeling?
And yet is lying awake at night in a state of paralysis doing any good either?
And so I picked one thing I can do, one thing that is the very best of what I have to offer.

I plant trees.

I plant trees and have faith that those of you who document, march, write letters, offer safe harbour and commit other acts of nonviolence are all out there taking action with me.

All of us, all giving the very best of ourselves.

    1. Hi Arnold, gum trees for koalas and gliders, calistamon to hold the creek banks, a heap of other natives for the wildlife. That’s my bushcare group. At home its mainly fruit trees. Mulberry, mandarine, fig, so far. And just today a bottle tree 💚
