I look forward to your book. You sound optimistic. I wish I could be too. Einstein was not too hopeful, but still managed to live and make discoveries. He said WW 3 would be fought with stone axes.
I immigrated from Denmark in 1963 to Australia, and have lived in a lovely bush block of land with gum trees, kookaburras and wallabies etc. for 26 years now. 86 years old now and hoping to live here till my end. I am fully aware that to be able to do that, most of the aboriginals here in Tasmania were killed. I live maybe on a blood soaked small acre. I hate it when I hear shooting at night. What animal is killed now, and why? Can't they be left alone. Last year wallabies in great numbers got poisoned, so carrots could be grown. We have enough carrots already. I protested, as did several other neighbours. No use. That is just the animals.
Since I was a girl I have hated developments in cities, so the green areas became concrete or bricks. Nothing I could do about it.
Too many humans, that is the main trouble. Any ideas?
