If only we’d turn to our first nations ..!

That’s a really interesting article if you haven’t previously read about how our Aboriginal peoples handle fire.

And if you have, it will make you hope that this bloke’s voice, and the voices of all his brothers and sisters, are heard by our ludicrously denialist (?) government.

On the topic of this latter group, I was included in a ‘pass it around’ email bewailing the way we have been treating our Prime Minister during this terrible time of the fires. I scanned the first few par.s and concluded that if the bloke who wrote it wasn’t involved in social networking, he wouldn’t have reason to be so indignant. Then I thought: “how in the name of all the gods can he wax so offended by the rage felt against the government, at a time when both federal and state members were found to be overseas on holidays while their country burned ?”, and answer came there none.

Apparently, though, this writer’s beef is just about Smoko: what a good-hearted bloke he is, what a good man all ’round, etc., etc.

Well, gritting my teeth (yes, I still have ’em), I’m obliged to admit that I’m just as guilty as is that bloke (whose name raises no recognition in my ancient thinking) with regard to chucking my political opinions in readers’ faces. And it concerns me that readers passing by MRSMRS may be rendered just as choleric by ’em.

Anyone to whom this applies, PLEASE tell me so ! That’s what the comments space is for.

Have finally found home: in my ... ahh ... later years. With no family within coo-ee and no assets, I'm in a wonderful and totally independent unit within the auspices of a celebrated aged care organization. Idea is that I have two 'houses' I can move into were I to become cerebrally challenged: but it's my firm intention not to. :D P.S. I have no idea how I got to this number of years: I was young only last week ..

  1. Thank you for such an interesting article! I read it quickly, and plan to read it again. There’s information there worth studying. We are living in such contentious times. It’s hard for me to be at all patient with people, friends included, who perhaps aren’t reading and following events carefully, yet spout “let’s all stay positive” messages. I’ve had to distance myself quite a bit so that at least I’m not throwing too many verbal grenades. :-(

    1. Tell me about it. :\
      But I’m not as successful as you are, you beautiful creature: the aggro tends to spill from me ancient lips. :D
      I rave on fairly often about how we could learn so much from the nations who were here thousands and thousands of years ago; but of all of us who think this way, if there’s a single politician among us, s/he is keeping a low profile. A pox on the lot of ’em !


Go on - you can say it. :)
