SUE JACKSON Therapist/Writer/Photographer/Activist

Last year, as the unofficial blogger/photographer to the anti-East-West Link campaign, our battles were my blog's entire focus. But by Christmas, with the electoral win for people power and the dumping of the dud Tunnel, I was suddenly at a loss. What to write about now? Not sure yet. But there will be ongoing musings and images from this Australian life. So please leave a message. (No need to sign into an account.

A hive of activity

The last few weeks have been particuarly productive ones for me.
I have had an article on food swaps - 'One Good Turn-ip Deserves Another' published in the latest Earth Garden Magazine and another on permacultural responses to pesky possums - 'Possum Magic' - featured in the biannual book Back Yard Farmer put out by Earth Garden Books.

I have also had an article on the world-wide bees crisis published in The Big Issue. To learn more about The Big Issue click here.
All of a sudden there seems to be lots of publisher interest in pieces on environmental themes. I must have read five articles on bees alone in the newspaper over the last few weeks. Clearly the Zeitgeist is changing rapidly; maybe we will be able to adapt quickly enough to avert disaster after all.
