There goes the neighbourhood. Not
only do Mum and Dad across the
road think they can skylark at all
hours of the day and night without
giving a hoot about the rest of us peaceful
souls, now they've extended open house
to the whole family. Talk about being out of
Still, after a decade and a half of sharing
the same turf, in a manner of speaking,
you'd think we'd see eye to eye by now. Well,
we do, except in our case it involves some
neck strain. Mum and Dad have a distinct
advantage as they stare down at us from their
lofty perch -- and even loftier self appointed
status as our "senior neighbourhood wildlife".
As such, they need protecting and I can't
think of a worthier cause.
Our long wedded pink and grey galah
couple have returned to the same nest every
year for the past 16 years, as we are reliably
informed by another local guardian, and
successfully reared their brood, come rain,
hail, gale or baking sunshine. It's our great
good fortune that their nest is inside a squat
old gum tree that faces our house in an
inner city suburb, with city views through its
Despite all the efforts to chop it down,
either partially each year to clear a route for
powerlines, an annual assault that has left
it strangely V shaped, or permanently ("It's
such an impractical tree and should never
have been planted in the first place!"), our
sturdy gum is still defiantly standing. And its
squawking squatters aren't going anywhere
anytime soon. No empty nesters here. As I
head off to work each morning, I look up to
see if I can spot a familiar pink crested head
nodding in my direction -- it's a funny feeling
to realise these birds probably know us and
our routines better than we do! And lately, the
extended "galah gang" of 12 or so members
has taken to grazing a vacant lot next door or
gathering for a late afternoon chinwag on the
powerlines. Maybe it calls to the country girl
in me, but I love it.
The point of my ramble down a country
lane is that to live with an awareness of nature
brings us closer to peace and the deeply
healing power of a universal energy. Even
those of us living city lives with all the hustle
and bustle that's the flip side of the city buzz
can find natural beauty everywhere we look.
It's in a flower, a magnificent shrub that
bursts into bloom every spring, a neighbour 's
organic vegie patch (we've got one of those),
the frog call on a crisp, still night, a pair of
black and white magpie larks who've set up
home in the front garden and who seem
equally undisturbed by our comings and
goings... if you'd love some birds plant some
trees and they'll come.
But such beauty brings with it an
awesome responsibility -- and that's where
we're falling so far short. To return to health,
both for ourselves and our fellow creatures
on the planet we all share, we have to find
a way to wholeness. And what we do in our
own backyards to nurture life is the starting
This month, as we turn towards winter,
slow down and start savouring all those little
things that make us whole and make life
