A Suburban Storm It was hard to chose a favourite from the gems contributed to Nature Space by Amy Palko, but somehow, in the midst of summer floods and a gigantic cyclone bearing down on Queensland, this seemed appropriate. Do you ever feel like dancing in the rain? As we run headlong in February we […]

Wild Women Don’t Do Paths

From a very young age we are encouraged to keep to the path.  After all, just look what happened to Little Red Riding Hood when she wandered off in search of wildflowers! Or the sad case of Hansel & Gretel, left alone in the forest with no path to follow, and their makeshift breadcrumb path […]

The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen.

Wow! December is here! Another year end approaches at the speed of light, and as the weather heats up here, and cools down for our northern friends, our thoughts turn to celebrations and the passing of time. Our chosen theme for December is Ceremony. A little different from the usual, and boy, have our contributors […]

I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them […]
