FRIDAY NIGHT DOG BLOG: HOW IT GOES November 2, 2013

The days slide past, and the weeks merge into months, and somehow it is how it goes. For Dexter and Hannah one of the points of each day is to get out. They seem to enjoy it anyway.

A few things happened out in that other wider world. Lou Reed died. The Opera House turned forty. The Climate Change Authority produced a draft report suggesting that more ambitious targets be set for carbon emission reduction. This will stir the climate change deniers, lead by the Prime Minister.

It seems people have come up with an innovative idea. In France, instead of mowing the lawn, sheep are being rented out, which gives new meaning to the long paddock. I don’t wonder since in fact I have a pretty good idea how Dexter and Hannah would respond.

On the local level, the creeks remind dry, or rather are receding up the hill. We had some light falls of rain. Just to aggravate the foolish climate change nonsense, typical of the Prime Minister, this may signify the climate change. Of course, weather is the local expression of climate.

While Dexter, Hannah and me, may not notice the ramifications of the larger picture, and combined with the effects of population and human actions, the ecosystem will increasing evidence stress rather than adaptation. We might bear witness and perceive the impact, since human beings have been formed and sustained in nature.

So here are some photos that even when mashed together merely show selectively the surface of what is recorded:

Picasa made possible the organization of the photos.
