The Green Wedge & Lysterfield Park :: 13 April 2014

Between Glenfern Road and Wellington Road. Shot with iPhone 4S.


Some of these tracks are now frequented by the walking equivalent of the infamous weekend cyclists that visit the hills. What I didn’t photograph was the red face-washer I picked up from the track (SCORE!) along with the empty water bottles and energy/protein packaging people drop *willy nilly*.

But rather than getting Dave-Hughes-ANGRY at the unknown disrespectful citizens that create this mess (which would doubly ruin my time spent at such places), I’m going to try picking up such rubbish without giving negative thoughts to anyone or the situation, and instead perhaps even try doing so with a love FOR the area and the minimal care I give it, for myself and others like myself that visit these areas partly because of the lack of human activity evident in them.

I remembered that in the past, when I’ve quietly willed for something to come about, I’ve been pleasantly surprised when it has eventuated through no direct intervention on my behalf. I figure that if I do what I feel is the right thing and subconsciously internally will that others (that I don’t really interact with – or even see) may join me in leaving these areas looking pristine. 

If that “new-age-eque” approach fails, I’ll just hide in the bushes in camo with a dart gun and tranquillise the fuckers.

Shaun Micallef wreaks havoc on “Breakfast”

This man warms my heart ad infinitum – if there was no upper limit to how hot a thing can get. 

Wow… What is the hottest something can be? Is there a limit? Does the Universe shrivel up if something gets too ridiculously hot?

Hmm…

Low Leaf - As One

Sexy voice, sexiness. Very cool song.

radio republic also asked me about mother earth

For many, this will sound like bizarro hippy bullshit, but beliefs shape (and therefore limit) experience. I still find myself discounting others seemingly far-out experiences simply because they are new to me and not yet in my own realm of experience.

Being open to a universe of possibility and beyond is where I prefer to be, and will stand to gain the most in my life.

Last night, I dreamed Kevin Rose and I went to a Sizzler®, where we were given iPhones with our buffet salad plates.
Now, I don’t usually dream about “work,” so I can only infer that the goddamned iPhone has now succeeded where many others have failed — it’s actually broken through the (usually-much-more-fascinating) shrubbery of my unconscious, and now it haunts me while I slumber.
Friends, it’s hard for me to articulate how much I’m looking forward to tomorrow passing; you people can get your fucking iPhones, and Makebelieve Kevin and I can finally enjoy our salads and ribeyes in peace.

"We procrastinate when we’ve forgotten who are are."

Just spent a good twenty minutes searching for this orginal post. NOW I HAVE YOU REBLAWGED!

I have a “framed” “replica” of this sitting on my desk. Thing is, I’ve become blind to it as it has blended into everything else over the years.

I should dress it up with tinsel. Or lipstick. Or I could just move it to the other side, of course.

Here in Australia, this is what has been happening over the past few days. The media is largely ignoring it, despite it being one of the largest protests in this country’s history. My state has also just passed laws that will come into effect in September that put restrictions on protesting which could lead to two years imprisonment. Our Prime Minister won’t even acknowledge that this has been happening.

Reblog this!

Please get this circulating. Australian media refuses to cover it and the government is pretending it didn’t happen even though there were people on their doorsteps at Parliament house. People in Australia are discontented with the way asylum seekers are treated like criminals, indigenous people are still being treated horribly, that our prime minister is a racist, sexist, homophobe who appointed himself as Minister for Women, that our health care is threatened, that our environment is being treated as a commodity, that our university funding is being cut, and that our Prime Minister doesn’t “believe” in climate change and that this country now only caters to the rich and conservative. And that barely scratches the surface.

What this government does is not in our name and we need to get the message out there, loud and clear.

Glenfern Valley Bushlands 15-03-2014

For a year now, I’ve been attending the monthly working bees that the “Friends of Glenfern Valley Bushlands" runs to rehabilitate the area.

It used to be a council depot, and thank-fully some thoughtful individuals sought to have it kept from being cleared and developed.

It’s a beautiful piece of land whose vegetation varies quite significantly, and I’ve had some really meaningful times there “communing with nature”; that was the impetus for me deciding to join the group and help out.

At each working bee I’ve taken photos of the area we’ve been working in, and I thought I may as well put them up here, in addition to them being added to their modest Facebook page.
