    I found we had giant earth worms in Jumbuk.. Yinnar.. GIPPY... as well as giant determined wombats... that had walked 'their paths' for eons.. and were not going to be deterred from The Path .. by a pissy lil bit of fencing around a vege patch.. despite the fact that I was MERELY suggesting they walk around a .. corner not the straight line of THE PATH.. so they simply bull dozed their way through it every night until I decided the corner could be the wombats.. and rebuilt the fence with the corner shaved off.. and everyone was happy cept the wallabies who the fence was built to keep out ! a good life should/could be about compromise.. in many little ways

    Calling Mr Gruffy & Rockmoose for a conference on harmony betwixt human folk and the original fauna!
    I look at transporting worms to fish as recycling in the ultimate form. I eat the caught fish and return them to either Earth or the river system somewhere down the tract.

    All part of the cycle of life. What I find most fitting, given humankinds overinflated sense of self importance, is that we will be wiped out by the smallest lifeforms.
