Joni Mitchell wrote this song over 50 years ago, will we ever learn to look after our beautiful broken world?

this powerful image was taken by Shannon Dooley at the Climate Change rally at Town Hall on Friday
may this be the tipping point for shifting the dominant paradigm from greed to mending our beautiful broken world

it’s New Year’s Eve here in the Big Smoke
with bushfires raging right across this ancient land
a day for clearing out the old energy and getting to know my new iMac
may 2020 be a year of clear vision for our beautiful broken world

Seasons Greetings with Best Wishes for 2020!
Mo & Rod (aka Old Man Crow)

PS it’s December 19th, 2019 my iMac is giving up the ghost
to quote Captain Lawrence Oates of the Antarctic ( but not so heroically)

“I am just going outside and may be some time.”
x fingers will see you with a new confuser next year!

We have lived here in our beautiful old lady of a house for 11 years, the Hoya is celebrating with Fiona & Barry’s Imagine Peace weathergrams and Bronwyn Berman’s beautifully beaded and bound river stone
with so many flowers happening this year!
and we have privacy from the upstairs bedroom window at last!
love how Madeleine set up Holding the Moon at the Collectors Choice show at Artsite
moonsong sold to a museum curator & conservator of textiles and paper from Western Australia,
last year she bought Once in a Blue Moon & the chicken & the egg in 2017
hoping there will be photos of the opening to post soon & thanks to everyone who came along
but the sad news is my beautiful sister in law Debbie had a stroke just as she and my brother Mike were getting ready to go to my Mom’s for Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, she is in ICU, x fingers she will make a full recovery!
