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 their tree.
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
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
