Mapleton Falls

we visited the beautiful Mapleton falls,we went on a nature walk through the canopy of the rain forest, listening to the waterfall and the abundant birdlife.

My daughter wrote this yesterday – so true so sad and so nice!

Yesterday I witnessed a truly moving moment between two strangers on the street. A homeless man approached a lady dressed in corporate office attire and mumbled at her in an incoherent and almost crazed manner, all the while shivering in the cold night air. Most people walked a far distance around him and avoided eye contact. This lady however, took out some money and gave it to him, then proceeded to carefully button up his old and worn out coat. She re arranged his scarf so it was snug around his neck. She then wrapped her arms around him and gave him a warming and genuine hug. This was such a kind gesture. This simple and heart warming act demonstrates how important it is that we all have a collective responsibility in society to re evaluate the way we interact with human beings who are less fortunate than ourselves and not demoralise them by pretending they don’t exist. Soz for the rant.0407_1757



I have recently been to Melbourne to visit my daughter, we did a bit of the tourist scene, we went to the Zoo I ┬ádon’t know why I did this but we left on a downer really as the animals all looked so sad. I suppose I have to look at it as; by going there hopefully the money to get in takes care of these magic animals. I love all animals and I would prefer to see them in there natural habitat.
