It has been a wickedly dry and hot summer, my work-days are filled with people who are dealing with and the effects of poverty and disadvantage; struggles for truly better and more just ways of living abound. There are issues everywhere to be dealt with and not a lot of obvious will to do the dealing. The only thing to be done is press on! And be inspired by others who press on also, taking action where they can and keeping the wheels of alternative possibilities turning…

And here is a link the marvellous Mary’s blog. Mary’s consistent small actions are really helpful in themselves, but also in assisting those of us who get a bit despondent to keep going!

And we have had some rain – there are hints of green in Auburn and elsewhere… and birds poke their heads out of nests too if you are lucky.
