2010 - TNP Pirralilla Section - Planting in Rain

2010  - TNP Pirralilla Section - Planting in RainThe Tamborine Mountain mist has put a dampener on the Tamborine Bush Volunteers working bees in 2010.  If this is Climate Change at work, the rainforest is not complaining.  On both working bees the members have put in a sterling effort under showery conditions.  At the Geissemann Drive project weeding was the task while this month planting in the rain at Pirralilla Section did not seem so bad.  If you would like to join these activities, new members are made to feel welcome.

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.
