(1885 - 1968)
The love of field and coppice,
Of green and shaded lanes.
Of ordered woods and gardens
Is running in your veins,
Strong love of grey-blue distance
Brown streams and soft dim skies
I know but cannot share it,
My love is otherwise.
I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror -
The wide brown land for me!
A stark white ring-barked forest
All tragic to the moon,
The sapphire-misted mountains,
The hot gold hush of noon.
Green tangle of the brushes,
Where lithe lianas coil,
And orchids deck the tree-tops
And ferns the warm dark soil.
Core of my heart, my country!
Her pitiless blue sky,
When sick at heart, around us,
We see the cattle die-
But then the grey clouds gather,
And we can bless again
The drumming of an army,
The steady, soaking rain.
Core of my heart, my country!
Land of the Rainbow Gold,
For flood and fire and famine,
She pays us back threefold-
Over the thirsty paddocks,
Watch, after many days,
The filmy veil of greenness
That thickens as we gaze.
An opal-hearted country,
A wilful, lavish land-
All you who have not loved her,
You will not understand-
Though earth holds many splendours,
Wherever I may die,
I know to what brown country
My homing thoughts will fly.

I only speak English,
with a small dose of,
Aussie slang mixed in,
I always wanted to learn,
my husbands native language,
Hungarian but he was the,
naughtiest teacher ever,
taught me naughty words,
so I gave it up as a bad joke,
taught him English
||I would like to tell all my care2 friends how much I appreciate them and all they do in trying to achieve a better planet for all living beings. Thanking you all kindly for all the many green stars many of you send very often. I'm sorry for being a tad tardy lately. I hope to sort myself out soon and get back full time. Sending loving thoughts to you all xxx.
I'm a wife, mother and grandmother, I've been married 48 years to my wonderful love of my life.
Married him when I was 17 and he was 26. We have 2 lovely children and 4 beautiful grandchildren 19, 18, 15 and 10 and a gorgeous fur child Henny.
Dawnie Joined care2 September 2009.
However care2 says I joined July 2014.
My original profile and joining date was deleted for some reason. Apparently from what I read they can send a pack of hyenas to gobble up ones profile and account with no explanation necessary, it seems the hyenas had a fine time dining on my profile butterfly points, green stars and donations and all reward cards sent by care2 plus friends comments and all friends. So my profile was removed from me by letting the care2 hyenas loose within Care2. I have come to the realisation that I will never know why or if I broke some law.Thank you all very, very kindly for your friendship. God Bless and may love and peace travel with you all always. I just wanted you all to know what happened to me. And it could happen to anyone of you. So please watch out for the hyenas they may eat your profile and account.

|Wild Fact About Me
||Hubby thinks I'm a tad naive and friends tell me I'm a bit of a dag (meaning funny) I love to laugh and can laugh like crazy if something tickles my fancy. I love with passion and care deeply for everything.
||Never hate anyone or thing because it destroys your soul and leaves one with an empty void. Hate is a totally useless emotion and will never make you feel better for a second, minute, hour, day, month, year, or a century.
|What Gives Me Hope
||My beloved husband and soul mate, my daughter and son, my three grand daughters and one grandson. My brothers and extended family, my friends and my cyber friends world wide who are doing there utmost to do good.
|If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
||If I had any power what so ever I would work to eliminate hunger, poverty and give more help to the disenfranchised who are homeless. I would make it law that every one gets a fair basic wage for work rendered and any company not complying would have to explain and be named and fined. Solar energy grids for the electric companies and solar panels made more accessible for all residential users. Clean up the river systems and get them flowing properly and make sure the water is clean and healthy. Teach all children that we need a healthy environment and all the animals and birds within, because the animals and the environs certainly do not need us. Humans are too greedy and always want to usurp all the land regardless of the damage we inflict.
Stop GMO crops, fracking, all toxic sprays.
Oh! And learning that war and the amount of money dedicated to killing is lunacy of the first degree. War is driven by the same old argument that has been raging for centuries, it just pops up as the same old tired war under a different set of bigotries and hatred and goes on because we have humans who have no soul or ethics and are empty vessels creating havoc, then they get tired and everyone goes home to rest then they send mothers sons or daughters off to fight against the latest travesty and start all over again in the same place or some other place. Never winning anything just getting tired, dead, wounded and worn out in the same old tired war of wars. It beggars belief.
If I think of any other good cause I could fix I will add it later.
|What/who changed my life and why
||My one true soul mate and love of my life dearest husband who is kind beyond belief and very generous to everyone, who also arrived in this country with no back in his shirt but covered with a sports jacket that he still has and does wear occasionally also our loving thoughtful kind daughter who is a very spiritual, our lovely kind laconic son who we don't see enough of due to the great tyranny of distance and cost of getting there. Our beautiful grandchildren who from the day they were born have inspired us and given us pure joy and hope. My all loving sweetest kind generous mum who would always drop everything to help and give everything she had if we needed it. Smart kind beautiful dad with all his wisdom and advice. Sweet generous warm Nana who was just one of the loveliest kind souls you would ever wish to meet. Wise all knowing Grandpa who was a smart man who knew great family history and passed it on. Oh, how we miss them. All my Great great grandparents who arrived in this land from England with hope in their pockets and only the clothes on their backs, for all the goodness, ethical ways of living and kind anecdotes left behind. Many kind souls to look up to and be thankful for.

||"Isn't man an amazing animal? He kills wildlife - all kinds of birds, kangaroos, deer, all kinds of cats big and small, coyotes, wolves, beavers, groundhogs, mice, foxes and dingoes, badgers and squirrels - by the million in order to protect his domestic animals and their feed. Then he kills domestic animals by the billion and eats them. This in turn kills man by the millions, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer. So then man tortures and kills millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases. Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals. Meanwhile, some people are dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so easily and so violently, and once a year, sends out cards praying for Peace on Earth."
"No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee."
~John Donne~No Man Is An Island - Meditation XVII
"I'm not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn't...The pain which it inflicts upon unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further."
If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live.
Only after the last tree has been cut down. Only after the last river has been poisoned. Only after the last fish has been caught. Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.
"If you have human beings who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion, pity and kindness you will have human beings who will deal likewise with their fellow human beings" - ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI;
People will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel"
-Quote ~Maya Angelou~
"I hope to make people realize how totally helpless animals are, how dependent on us, trusting as a child must be, that we will be kind and take care of their needs...They are an obligation put on us, a responsibility we have no rights to neglect, nor to violate by cruelty...."
- JAMES HARRIOT;
"The greatness of a nation & its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated" - MAHATMA GANDHI
"I am a piano player. And I realize that ivory piano keys are preferred by some pianists. But a preference for ivory keys does not justify the slaughter of 96 elephants every day,"
"Neither fire nor wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds." ~Siddhartha Buddha~
Genuine goodness is threatening to those at the opposite end of the moral spectrum. Author unknown.
"Each of us is here to discover our true selves; that essentially we are spiritual beings who have taken manifestation in physical form that we're not human beings that have occasional spiritual experiences, that we're spiritual beings that have occasional human experiences."
"Our essential nature is one of pure potentiality."
"Only in the last moment in history has the delusion arisen that human beings can flourish apart and without the rest of the living world."
