The Surfzone

The surf provides many exciting recreation opportunities, but it is also a very powerful natural phenomenon. Many years ago the distant sound of breaking surf could sometimes even be heard on Tamborine Mountain. This is no longer possible, but from the Mountain we can still see evidence of the surf’s power, when heavy surf throws plumes of salt spray high into the air along the coast.

White Christmas

Christmas in Australia occurs in midsummer, yet many of our Christmas trappings and traditions relate to frosty midwinter weather and the classic white Christmas. This is not surprising since most Christmas traditions, and most of us, originate from Britain and Europe.

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.
