Walkers: David, Gloria, Helen & Grahame, Hugh, Peter, Colin - Distance 13.8k.

2022-02-12 Daves CreekA cool morning to start the day which quickly warmed up turning to rain and strong gusts which would have brought down trees.

We all commented on the fire devestaion and the fact that the forest still had to grow back a substantial canopy.  Toward the southern end of Daves Creek we walked through heavily burnt areas with black tree trunks and next to no undergrowth.

Tracks turned to mud as we walked back to Binna Burra.

We all had a great time and were glad o be out walking in the forest again - Colin

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life.
