Geologically old regions (like most of Australia) tend to have low biological productivity and supported fewer people.” ~ David Holmgren

But if you want the day ahead to be full of miracles, then spend some time each morning with God.” ~ Marianne Williamson

What’s less appreciated is that there aren’t more natural disasters in need of an explanation.” ~ Leon Louw
