Aus day

Michael Leunig wrote in today's AGE 
"...there is a nation of individuals that occupy a common ground - of which we are custodians, whether they realise it or not. Arrayed with a huge variety of creatures, plants and landforms, in spite of its use and misuse at the hands of settlers and occupiers, it is a unique natural estate of great beauty, spirit and strength."
"... there can be no doubt that the land beneath their feet that stretches into the unknown beyond their horizons is utterly real and and natural. It has identity and integrity. It has a soul."
An old indigenous man was asked how to connect with the country " Just go out in the country and sleep a night on the ground there. Sleep on country"
You can't get better than that......
