30 ACROSS THE AGES
2012 is a potent year for deep healing, says
Over the last month or so, it has
gradually dawned on us that we
have a mystery night visitor. Even
on the coldest nights, which
down our southern way mean ice on the
fenceposts and sometimes a mist shrouding
all in wispy magic, our caller drops by. Not
that we ever hear him -- or them. Never a
peep, nothing even to stir our vigilant Blue
Heeler from her well earned slumbers.
The only hint is our neatly clipped
verge and front lawn, so perfectly 'mown'
it's hard to believe it's not a lepechraun with
a tiny lawnmower. The giveaway though is
the large green dropping or two on the lawn
that always awaits us.
Our mystery visitor is a wallaby or
perhaps a wallaby family. Maybe such visit-
ations are commonplace in the country, but
we live in a city with a national park on our
doorstep. We get a sense of our visitor 's
timidity -- the grazing stops dead at the road
sign halfway along our verge as if to step
any further away from his bushland home
would be a hop too far. We keep meaning to
rouse ourselves at dawn to catch a glimpse
of our wallaby hopping round the garden,
but maybe we love the mystery too much.
There's nothing so beautiful as living in
Nature's heart. Deep down, I think most of us
want that connection which is always there
if we spare the time to look for it.
Nurturing that connection to Nature
also applies to our food and once again
this month we direct our focus to the quality
of our nation's food supply. It is simply so
important because it is undeniable that
optimal health is dependent on eating good
food. Lifestyle diseases now in epidemic
proportions are a consequence of the
industrialisation of food and have exploded
the more we have moved away from natural
foods to the processed variety. Peter Dingle
PhD asks some telling questions in his
health feature this month, "The Truth about
Nutrition" and Jude Blereau offers her own
sound sense and beautiful cooking that's
quick and easy and nourishing.
Amid the gloomy health reports in our
media though, there has been some really
good news. I was delighted to learn that
shoppers are now so wary of permeate
in their milk, a diluting additive that
strangely is permitted in Australia even
though it is banned in Britain and the US,
that sales of such milk have taken a dive.
In their place we are seeking out smaller
artisanal brands that simply promise milk
as nature intended -- and we're willing to
pay that little bit more. In my own island
home of Tasmania nothing beats 'green' non-
homogenised milk and the contrast with
the permeated variety is chalk and cheese.
We've long been accused as a nation of
undervaluing our food -- so with sales of
boutique brands of milk up 45% since April
we've taken a big step forward.
And we have much more for you this
month as we turn into the second half
of this intensely transformative year of 2012.
Enjoy it all. Just a quick final message to all
our English readers to have a fabulously
successful Olympics in London. May the sun
shine on your parade.
